About Devil's Slide Trail in Pacifica, California

The Devils Slide Trail uses the old Highway 1 road along the stretch known as the Devil’s Slide. This section of the highway was eventually replaced with a double tunnel south of Pacifica to connect San Francisco to the Half Moon Bay area. The Devils Slide Trail is a wide paved path that meanders for 1.3 miles along a steep cliff face high above the ocean. It is a popular route for bikers, runners, and walkers. Benches are provided along the way for taking in the views or taking rests. Dogs are allowed along this path as long as they are on a leash. Trail users can learn about the area with interpretive signs along the route. There are parking lots at both ends of the trail, both on the west side of Highway 1 (Cabrillo Hwy), and each has restrooms and drinking water. The Devils Slide Trail is part of the California Coastal Trail. From the southern trailhead you’ll have a clear view of the Devils Slide Bunker.
