On this perfectly drizzly coastal Tuesday, a gaggle of county park people and media types walked along the new Devil's Slide Trail to see the sights before the trail's official opening March 27.
Reporters interviewed rangers, with the beautiful backdrop of ocean waves and dramatic rock formations (like San Pedro Rock, above) below the formerly treacherous roadway, which now is transformed at a cost of almost $2 million into a 1.3-mile-long pedestrian/equestrian/bicycle path, connecting at both ends to the California Coastal Trail.
The trail opens from 8 a.m. to sunset, year-round. Limited parking is available at either end of the trail. Daily SamTrans #17 buses and weekend-only free Pacifica shuttles offer rides to and from the trail. All buses have bike racks on the front. For schedules and other information, see samtrans.com and cityofpacifica.org.
Viewing sites, benches, restrooms, bike racks, drinking fountains, interpretive signs, and pet stations are in place. Leashed dogs are allowed. For more information, see smcoparks.org.
