Trails of the Coastside and Northern Peninsula shows parks and beaches between San Francisco, Pacifica, and Half Moon Bay. It's an area with diverse habitats, spectacular views, a growing network of trails. Parts of the landscape seem to have hardly changed since the Portola Expedition discovered San Francisco Bay from Sweeney Ridge in 1769. The coastal scrub and grassland have amazing wildflowers much of the year.
Side 1 shows GGNRA's Fort Funston, Milagra Ridge, and Sweeney Ridge areas; San Bruno Mountain, San Pedro Valley, and Junipero Serra County Parks, and the popular Sawyer Camp Trail in the Peninsula Watershed. The north edge of the map shows San Francisco's Lake Merced, McLaren Park, and Candlestick Point State Recreation Area.
Side 2 continues south from Devils Slide past McNee Ranch State Park (including Montara Mountain), Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, Pillar Point (Maverick's surfing area), Half Moon Bay State Beach, and Burleigh H. Murray Ranch State Park.
