San Pedro Valley Park

On San Pedro Valley Montara Trail

A vast area embracing the middle and south forks of San Pedro Creek, which is Steelhead spawning grounds, this park is nestled amongst the Santa Cruz Mountain range and the foothills of Pacifica. The park offers group picnic areas, family picnic sites with barbecue pits, a self-guided nature trail, hiking trails, a visitor center and views of the picturesque, seasonal Brooks Waterfall.

San Pedro Valley Park is a walker’s paradise. There are trails for all ages and fitness levels, ranging from the Valley View Trail to the wide vistas of San Pedro Valley and the Pacific Ocean from the top of Montara Mountain.

The facilities at San Pedro Valley are primarily for day use only. Two picnic areas are available by reservation, the North Walnut Grove (accommodates 100) and the South Walnut Grove (accommodates 200).

A visitor center near the park entrance displays exhibits about the ecosystem of San Pedro Valley and its plant and animal species, with some live exhibits.

No dogs are allowed in the park. Bicycles are allowed only on Weiler Ranch Road.
