San Bruno Mountain

San Bruno Mountain Park is a landmark of local and regional significance, standing as a unique open-space island in the midst of the peninsula's urbanization at the northern end of the Santa Cruz Mountain Range. The Mountain's ridge line runs in an east-west configuration, with considerable slopes and elevations ranging from 250 feet to 1,314 feet at the summit. The 2,326 acres of rugged landscape offer excellent hiking opportunities and outstanding views of San Francisco and Central Bay Area.

Eight trails make up the trail system in San Bruno Mountain Park: Eucalyptus Loop (1.08 miles), Bog Trail (.77 miles), Old Guadalupe Trail (.8 miles), Summit Loop Trail (3.13 miles), Saddle Loop Trail (2.1 miles), Dairy Ravine Trail (.43 miles), Ridge Trail (2.43 miles), and Old Ranch Road Trail (.71 miles). Some trails are restricted to hikers only. The Ridge Trail is very strenuous and is set-up in an "out-and-back" configuration
