A very popular coastal trail, it was originally constructed as part Half-Moon Bay-Colma Road which was the original county road in the area from 1879-1915. The route extended over San Pedro Mtn and is more commonly referred to as Old Colma Road... Climb out of the GWC parking lot is steep, but levels out after the first switchback.
