California Coastal Trail

Half Moon Bay: A Peaceful Passage by the Pacific

Half Moon Bay is a tranquil community known for its charm, small town friendliness and one of the most beautiful coastlines in the Golden State. The Half Moon Bay Coastside Trail, initiated by citizen activist John Hernandez, offers sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, access to several beaches, and a peaceful passage along ocean bluffs. This oasis bordering the sea is a cherished segment of the California Coastal Trail, regularly traversed on foot, bike, and horseback by residents, visitors, and commuters alike.
