1:00 PM - The gate to Pedro Point Headlands (PPH) will open and you will get a chance to see the before and after photographs of the restoration and trail work.

  • Kathy Kellerman - PLT Board member
  • Don Horsely - County of San Mateo District 3 Supervisor John Keener - Mayor of the City of Pacifica

We will tour the demonstration garden and for those that are interested we will head out for a group hike. There will be Virtual Pedro Point learning stations along the way, so bring your cell phone and QR code reader to get an augmented tour.

Up to 4:00 PM - We encourage everyone to explore Pedro Point Headlands and enjoy the spectacular vistas that are now preserved and protected for all to enjoy.

4:45 - The last shuttle to the Pedro Point Firehouse will leave.

Logistics: On-site parking is limited. We recommend that you take the shuttle at the Pedro Point Firehouse, 1227 Danmann Ave., Pacifica, CA 94044. We will be there to greet you. The shuttle will take you to and from PPH. For directions to the Firehouse go to:

For those who cannot meet up at the Firehouse, there is limited parking at the north end of the Tom Lantos Tunnels Devil's Slide Trail. From there it is a short hike to the Nursery and Trailhead. See the trail map below. If you plan on driving north on Highway 1 from Half Moon Bay, we do not recommend parking on the South end of the Tom Lantos Tunnels - it is a beautiful but long hike from there to Pedro Point Headlands.

Be prepared for warm or cold weather. Please wear comfortable clothes, bring some extra layers and good hiking shoes. A hat and sunscreen are recommended. Refreshments will be provided.

Thank You Project Partners!
