About San Pedro Creek:
San Pedro Creek is a perennial stream in the City of Pacifica and San Mateo County, California whose tributaries originate on Montara Mountain and Sweeney Ridge in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The main stem of the creek flows 2.5 miles through the Linda Mar neighborhood to the Pacific Ocean at Linda Mar Beach. The creek supports a steelhead population and various other riparian species.
