A hidden gem! Pedro Point is a relatively easy hike with stunning coastal views. Only 2.5 miles long and around 700ft elevation gain. This uncrowded spot is perfect for a quick hour walk next to the coast.
TO GET THERE:
Driving south on Cabrillo Highway (Hwy 1), right before the tunnels you will find the small parking lot on the right. You will see about 5 parking spots but if you keep driving you will find about 10 more.
TO EASE ANXIETY:
- The beginning of the hike is probably the steepest and most challenging part.
- Bring poles, the descent is slippery in some areas. However, there are ropes on the ground that are more comforting to walk on to prevent falling.
