To: end of Lifemark Road in San Mateo
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.
The Skylawn Memorial Park Ridge Trail is open during regular business hours (approximately 7AM – 6PM). Docents are not required as long as you stay on the cemetery property.
Elevation Gain/Loss 235 feet/15 feet one-way
