Old Pedro Mountain Road was once the main route between what are now the towns of Pacifica and Half Moon Bay along the coast south of San Francisco. Crossing the shoulder of Montaro Mountain, it was nearly impassible for automobiles and was replaced by the modern graded route that became Highway 1 in 1937. Much of the former paving has crumbled away but the remainder makes a great running, hiking and biking trail. The view here is of Pacifica on a recent overcast morning.
Scrappy wildflowers are in bloom.
