Description

This is the only section of the Bay Area Ridge Trail that passes through a cemetery! The trail segment was dedicated so it can eventually link future Ridge Trail from the south (near Skyline Boulevard) and the San Francisco Peninsula Watershed Trail. A short gap now exists between the cemetery and the watershed. Enjoy stunning views of the ocean and bay as you walk or ride the cemetery roads. See also the nearby outing: San Francisco Peninsula Watershed: Fifield-Cahill Trail.
