Crystal Springs Regional Trail South of Highway 92 Project
The CSRT South of Highway 92 Project is part of the planned 17.5-mile CSRT that stretches from the City of San Bruno to the Town of Woodside. 15.3 miles of the CSRT are now complete. Today the CSRT serves over 325,000 hikers, joggers, equestrians, and cyclists annually and is one of the most popular facilities operated by County Parks. People of all ages can be seen on a given day, from parents with children in strollers to distance runners to groups of walkers. Visitation continues to grow as people seek local places to recreate, socialize, and enjoy nature.
San Mateo County has planned and permitted this new section of the Crystal Springs Regional Trail. This trail section will begin on Cañada Road just south of the signalized intersection of Highway 92 and Highway 35 and follows adjacent to Cañada Road where one can cross Cañada Road to the Ralston Bike Trail or continue along the Crystal Springs Trail. The new trail follows the contours of the Crystal Springs Reservoir and has view of San Francisco Watershed lands on both sides.
The Trail will be a new multi-use trail opportunity created by renovating an existing service road. The Trail will be open for use from sunrise to sunset and will have no parking or entrance fees. The Trail will be fully accessible for persons with disabilities with a 10-foot-wide paved surface and a 2-foot-wide soil shoulder where possible and is being developed for multiple users including walkers, joggers, roller skaters and horseback riders. Three benches, informational and entry signs, kiosks, four trash receptacles and a restroom will be added to support the visitor experience.
