The Centennial Way Trail follows the path of the BART line between San Bruno station and South San Francisco station. The BART, of course, runs underground while the trail doesn't. The 10-foot-wide trail is paved with asphalt and has 2-foot granite shoulders. It meanders through a low-maintenance landscaped area, with wildflowers, and is lit for night use. Street crossings are made easy with pedestrian signals at Spruce and Chestnut avenues and in-ground flashing lights at Orange Avenue.
Via a spur trail at Orange Avenue you can connect to downtown South San Francisco; take Orange to the canal and head southeast along the canal Street. You can also pick up the spur at Antoinette Lane and head southeast along the canal to downtown.
