Restoring Pedro Point Headlands
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.
- Completion of the 30 Percent Restoration Plan and 30 Percent Trail Improvement Plan. The first public meeting to discuss the plans is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 10, 6:00-8:00PM at the Pacifica Community Center.
- Fall Creek Engineering was hired to conduct the design, planning and permitting to restore the serious damage from past OHVs. Learn more.
- 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.
