Document Description
The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), proposes to improve and develop recreational trails and associated facilities located within the Peninsula Watershed in central San Mateo County. The Peninsula Watershed property is owned by the City and County of San Francisco and managed by the SFPUC. The project is a component of the SFPUC’s Peninsula Watershed Management Plan. The project area includes watershed lands along the Fifield-Cahill ridge trail, which is approximately 1.5 miles north of the State Route 92 (S.R. 92)/State Route 35 (S.R. 35) intersection (north of the Skylawn Memorial Park), and watershed lands extending south from S.R. 92 approximately 6 miles to the Phleger Estate boundary and east from S.R. 35 a few hundred feet. Primary project components proposed for areas north of S.R. 92 include a new 0.5-mile universal access loop trail (that would provide Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant access and parking), and a 50-car parking lot and restroom near the watershed’s Cemetery Gate, as well as the transfer of a public access easement (from the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council to the SFPUC) along an existing segment of the Bay Area Ridge Trail through Skylawn Memorial Park. Project components proposed for areas south of S.R. 92 include a new 6-mile southern skyline ridge trail along S.R. 35, a 20-car parking lot, and two restrooms. Along the proposed southern skyline ridge trail, the SFPUC would install a prefabricated bridge to span a gulch that intersects the trail alignment. The SFPUC is considering multiple public access program configurations with differing levels of restrictiveness. These access programs would apply to existing and new trail areas north and south of S.R. 92, and cover a range of potential access controls— from supervised to unsupervised.
