Landmarks Between Duarte's Tavern and Santa Cruz

rockaway Rockaway Beach
There are hiking trails with vistas that afford views of Alcatraz, shops, museums and many sports and recreational activities to enjoy. Be sure to drop by the Promenade with the sculpture and watch surfers navigate the waves that break close to shore.
Montara Mountain and State Beach
Montara Mountain is an ecological island of natural biological diversity. Its steep slopes have minimized human impact, and it is home to plant and animal communities found no where else in the world. Hikers who make it to the top will enjoy 360 degrees of beauty. Hike is very difficult.
Half Moon Bay
This historic town is home to numerous shops, art galleries, and other businesses. Local beaches and parks can be accessed by pedestrians, bikes and equestrians. The Pumpkin Festival held in October draws hundreds of thousands of people to the coast to enjoy its panoramic vistas and genuine hospitality.
