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:

  • Compiled the questions and comments from our public meeting on September 10, 2015, at the Pacifica Community Center into this document:  Summary of 9-10 Public Meeting.
  • Volunteers in the stewardship program meet monthly to care for the land. Volunteers grow and plant native trees, shrubs and wildflowers – and provide a variety of crucial help. Learn more.
  • The Pacifica Land Trust received a Measure A grant from San Mateo County.  Learn More.
