A nice little sample of the Pacifica goods brought to you by local legend Brian Gong. Climb up Pedro Mountain Road to access this loop with amazing views of Pacifica, Devils Slide, and Half Moon Bay. At the Top of Perdro Mountain Rd. go right onto Pedro Mountain Crest Trail, up the switchbacks to Old Colma Road, all the way to Green Valley Road and that will take you to Hwy 1. Cross Hwy 1 to the Devil's Slide Trail (old hwy1) to the Arroyo Trail back down into Pacifica. Now it's just a quick ride down Linda Del Mar Blvd, and then a right onto Adobe Drive back to the car.

Whoever rebuilt the flowy section on this crushed it. Thanks again!

Thanks to some dedicated trail work, this trail has been wonderful through spring and early summer.

By mid to late season it degrades into being quite nasty, with the soft dry dirt unable to hold up, developing deep narrow ruts on every steep turn in the trail, and chonky braking bumps on many of the downhill straights.

You're correct. The conditions really come down to how much rain we get. Which isnt much these years.

Trail is overall in good shape, really tight with the bushes and the cliffs so bail uphill if you lose it

I'm pretty sure the majority of the people go downhill on this trail. Just climb via the fireroad.

This is an uphill climbing trail. Please don’t descend it. If you do it will get too torn up to climb and then we’ll have no climbing trails. Go descend one of the many downhill trails instead. If you can’t handle them, that’s not an excuse to descend this trail.

This is a beautiful trail to climb, with a few rocky and muddy sections, and some steep grippy switchbacks that keep you focused but are totally doable. Watch out for potential pedal strikes in the rutted sections.

Steep with slight turns. The slope combined with high bushes makes it hard to see what’s coming up in some sections. The pictures and videos on trail forks have nothing to do with this trail.

Great trail. Really fun to climb and the moisture from the fog gives great traction

This trail is best ridden in the downhill direction. The views are incredible and the trail is very narrow in places. There is a staircase about midway through the descent that you will have to carry your bike up. Shortly before the staircase, the trail has significant cliffside exposure and you best be on your toes.
