Virtual Pedro Point

Learning Station 4: Bluff Overlook


This spectacular vista reveals Devil’s Slide to the south and San Pedro Rock to the northwest.

Below is coastal bluff succulent scrub, a recognized environmentally sensitive habitat.

It harbors many locally rare species, such as the Franciscan wallflower.  These cliffs are the haunt of peregrine falcons.

San Pedro Rock is made from complex uplifted geology and rich ecology

Ocean Shore Railroad, remnants lie directly below reveled by a fine line running along the cliffs about one third of the way up from the shoreline, fading out near San Pedro Rock where a tunnel once cut through the point. The tunnel was blasted shut during Prohibition.
