Pterodactyl is a challenging Halfmoon Bay trail with lots of twists and turns, rooty areas, a few ramps and boardwalks and rocks, etc. Also after a rain there are a few thick, muddy areas. It can be reached via In & Out or Datsun Alley depending on where you are coming from.

Access Info

A nice ride or walk that includes this trail is to enter from Connor Park on Pick It Up, take the first left on Out & In and follow it to the water tower road. Go right and then straight back in on the right to In & Out. Take the first left - which isn't very far in from the road - onto Pterodactyl. Follow along til you get to the end which will take you to Datsun Alley. Turn right downhill for about 1 km and take the first right which will take you back up Pick It Up to Connor Park. If you are walking this is about a 45 to 60 minute walk and if you are riding it will likely take you about 1/2 hour or less (again always depending on your skill and fitness level).
