Description

This segment offers a lovely stretch of open space along the bluffs and hillside of GGNRA's Milagra Ridge, with distant views over the Pacific. The route also follows streets within Skyline College and Pacifica, including a section along the oceanfront. The route is mostly level, with a downhill stretch from Milagra Ridge to Oceana Boulevard. Visit in March and April, when wildflowers are in bloom. Be prepared for fog in summer.

This trail description is excerpted from the 2019 Bay Area Ridge Trail Guidebook. For details on all trails, trailheads and more buy the book from Wilderness Press.
