Pedro Point Headlands Restoration & Stewardship
Located between San Francisco and Half Moon Bay, Pedro Point Headlands offers a spectacular 255-acre landscape, three miles of trails and stunning views. At the same time, the Headlands suffers from persistent erosion, caused by past off-highway vehicle (OHV) use. Sediment runs into San Pedro Creek, harming fish, frogs and other wildlife.

The Pacifica Land Trust is beginning the process of restoring the beauty and health of the Pedro Point Headlands. Together with the community and partner organizations we are working to heal this unique coastal ecosystem and improve the trails.

Recent progress:

  • The Mitigated Initial Study – Negative Declaration (IS-MND) is now available for the public to review and comment.  The document can be downloaded HERE. Please submit your comments by March 23rd at 5 pm to Samuel Herzberg, Senior Planner, AICP at  A public hearing on the CDP has been scheduled for May 11th at San Mateo County.
