Who can resist an afternoon at Half Moon Bay State Park? With gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean, four small white sand beaches, lovely trees and shrubs, and the cool salty sea breeze, this gorgeous park is the pawfect place to spend some quality time with your beloved pet.
The pawsome beaches are the main draw to this park. Unfurtunately, canine visitors are not allowed on the beaches. While they may not be able to frolic in the waves, they are welcome to trot along the Coastside Trail. This furrific path stretches four miles along the bluffs and terraces that overlook the beaches. Take a walk along this trail so your doggo can get some much needed exercise and soak in some puptacular ocean views. Since the trail is lined with California poppies, beach primroses, sand verbena, and yellow bush lupines, be sure to let your pal stop to smell the flowers. The trail is multi-use, so help your pup yield to cyclists, roller bladers, and runners.
Four legged friends are also allowed to stay in the
Francis Beach campground. Whether you are traveling in an RV or ruffing it in a
tent, you’ll find the pawfect spot. Be aware that hookups are not available,
but there is a dump station. If you are just visiting for the day, bring a
sandwich for you and some biscuits for your pup and eat lunch in the picnic
area. The views and the company simply can’t be beat!
Don’t forget to always have a clean up bag on hand and
carry plenty of water. Above all else, have a woofderful time with your furry
