Ultimate Sunday Hike
A geologic inevitability, Devil’s Slide is situated high above the Pacific Ocean between the coastal towns of Pacifica and Halfmoon Bay. For decades, it has been a consistent and persistent headache for local motorists and CalTrans alike, closing Highway 1 innumerable times as sections have slid into the hungry surf below.
As one of the Bay Area's most accessible urban hikes, a climb up San Bruno Mountain has rewards at every twist and turn of the trail. The relative isolation of this steep-sloped, northernmost peak in the Santa Cruz mountain range has created habitat conditions for 14 rare and endangered species. With over 12 miles of trails there's much to see in this special place.
