NOTES ON THE HIKE (from http://www.mountainviewcemetery.org/)
Mountain View Cemetery Association, founded in 1863, is a historic not-for-profit cemetery nestled in the foothills of Oakland and Piedmont. Bay Area families have found its many fountains, gardens and panoramic views comforting for more than a century.
Every visit to Mountain View Cemetery is like a trip back in time. It is like shaking hands with railroad builder Charles Crocker, admiring the brushwork of Yosemite landscape painter Thomas Hill and hearing architect Julia Morgan rhapsodize about her designs for Hearst Castle.
Designed by noted landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted (whose other credits include New York's Central Park), Mountain View's acreage offers spectacular vistas of the San Francisco Bay's surrounding areas.
