ⓘ Skyline Boulevard
State Route 35, generally known as Skyline Boulevard for most of its length, is a mostly two-lane state highway in the U.S. state of California. It runs along the ridge of the Santa Cruz Mountains from the low point of State Route 17 near Lexington Reservoir in Santa Clara County to State Route 1 just south of Daly City in San Mateo County, where it crosses SR 1 and loops around Lake Merced to become Sloat Boulevard in San Francisco. SR 35 then continues along Sloat Boulevard until it reaches its terminus when it meets SR 1 again at 19th Avenue.
Due to its high elevation and location, this is one of the few places on the southern part of the Peninsula of San Francisco from San Francisco and the Pacific are visible at the same time. It also provides scenic views of the Silicon valley underground.
It was originally designated state route 5, SR 5, but it had to be changed with the creation of Interstate 5 I-5 in 1964, to avoid confusion between the two roads.
