“A fire road trail with amazing views of San Fransico and the Pacific Ocean.”— Willie Virgen
Starting at the beginning, the trail starts as a dirt path that navigates its way up the hills. It's thoroughly exposed the entire time. You'll encounter coastal shrubs and grasses with no trees really. Around mile two, the dirt trail turns into more of an old access road with some small rocks and hard-packed dirt. Here is where the serious incline begins and continues until about mile five. The trail stays like this until you reach mile five, where it flattens out (by this point you've reached the top of the ridge basically).
You'll have views of the entire coastline, San Franciso, Pacifica, Montara, and Moss Beach. Bring plenty of water and a snack for the top, as you'll want to soak up the view for a while.
