    This is a nice place to stop and sit for a bit. Lovely grounds and shade trees make a nice break from the everyday. For film buffs, this was also a film location for The Doors.  more »

    Spectacular Romanesque "Temple" built in the 1930's to celebrate the end of the journey of water from the Hetch Hetchy reservoir in Yosemite to the San Francisco Peninsula. Fronted by a beautiful reflecting pool and Italian-style Cypress trees give this area a relaxed and serene landscape perfect for picnicking after a long bike ride. A glorious and under appreciated gem on the Mid Peninsula.

    This is a pretty place to stop and refill your water bottles as you bicycle along Canada Road. The parking lot is closed to cars on weekends, but bicycles and pedestrians can usually go through the gate.
