Clipper Ridge Trail

Aerial view of Rancho Corral de Tierra trails

The trailhead is near the intersection of Coral Reef Avenue and Sevilla Avenue in El Grenada, but parking can be tricky in the area (Quarry Park, half a mile away, is probably your best bet). The trail itself, one of the best ways to experience Rancho Corral de Tierra, features a steep but rewarding climb that pays off with commanding views of Pillar Point Harbor, Half Moon Bay, and the seemingly boundless expanse of the Pacific.
