Six "Bay to Ocean" Trails

Printer-friendly version


The San Mateo County Department of Parks is currently soliciting input about the draft San Bruno Mountain Area Map of the 2010 San Mateo County Trails Master Plan Update.

One of the most significant changes to the draft Master Plan Update is the proposed inclusion of a series of regional trails in an east to west direction from the San Francisco Bay to Pacific Ocean.  These six "Bay to Ocean" trails will link the regional trails that travel from north to south, from San Francisco to Santa Clara and Santa Cruz Counties.  Each Bay to Ocean Trail will begin on the San Francisco Bay Trail, cross the Juan Bautista de Anza Historic Trail (El Camino Real), Bay Area Ridge Trail, and end on the California Coastal Trail. The below map shows the Oyster Point to Fort Funston Trail.

Each Bay to Ocean alignment is intended to travel through public parks and open spaces as much as possible and use existing trails and bicycle paths and routes.  The County also hopes that each alignment can support multiple trail users such as pedestrians, cyclists, and equestrians.

Interested residents can comment on the Oyster Point to Fort Funston Trail by sending an e-mail or written comment to Cecily Harris.  Her contact information is below:
