Driving the Old Stagecoach Route on the San Mateo Coast, California
You can’t beat the San Mateo Coast for an afternoon drive. Rolling hills rise from the craggy coast, covered with different species of grass that create a patchwork of subtly different hues. Chase the margin of green along the old stagecoach route, Stage Road, from San Gregorio to Pescadero. Then continue south along Cloverdale Road, past picturesque horse farms lined with white split-rail fences. At Gazos Creek Road, turn right to Highway 1 north.
