An iconic spot along the California coastline, Pigeon Point Light Station State Historic Park is home to several attractions. This easy hike is a great way to experience a beautiful section of coastline in Half Moon Bay.
Keep an eye on the ocean to look for dolphins, otters, harbor seals, and migrating gray whales in the spring and late fall.
Wheelchair-accessible Mel’s Lane was built by POST in 2005 on land purchased as part of the Saving the Endangered Coast campaign. This land was where a nine-unit motel was under construction in 2000, until POST bought the three-acre scenic bluff with tide pools, known as Whaler’s Cove, for public use. The trail is named in honor of lifelong conservationist Melvin B. Lane, a POST co-founder and first chair of the California Coastal Commission.
