Some of the most beautiful views of the city of Oakland and beyond to even Berkeley and San Francisco are to be had on this unconventional series of winding paths through Mountain View Cemetery. Situated on a series of moderately steep hills, there are beautiful oak trees set among the tombstones. Far from being mundane though, this cemetery has remarkable marble statues and obelisks and immense tombs. It is breathtaking and an easy place to revisit. In fact, it is a fairly popular picnic area for locals. Dogs are kindly allowed in this public cemetery, but only on good behavior which includes NOT urinating on the headstones.They ask that you keep to the sometimes broken and winding paths rather that tread on the actual grave sites. The roadways offer an easy alternative since cars are not too regular and the speed limit is very low. There are no public restrooms or fountains except for mourners. There are ample trash cans interspersed through the cemetery.
