Met with the sales representative. He was very informative and provided a selection of options, Price was very reasonable. Gave us the feeling of personable people and not stuffy like Chapel of the Chimes.

I like to visit the very old tomb. They have some new ones mixed with the very old ones. The road paths have some damages. Hope they will fix those roads soon.

What can I say? It's not a subject people usually wax eloquent about. The property is halfway up the Hayward hills, with plenty of space and a wonderful view. It's not the most expensive such place, however does match the usual high cost of living around here. We have twin plots there, and have always found the staff to be... More

Great place for quiet meditation. Portions are very old. Tree cut in form of praying hands. Has a mausoleum. Great staff to work with. Very good layout to find a grave site.

Lone Tree is an active cemetery dating back to the late 1800s, which isn't all that old. It is a peaceful oasis atop the Hayward Hills but not of the historic interest of some in Oakland. .

Beautiful property to reflect on the lives of those we lost. Historical Tombstones and trees. Some of the trees are aging and do need to be replaced. Could use a few benches. Worth a visit even if you do not have any family or friends buried there. If you want this to be your final resting place do your family... More

It has beautiful views and nice rolling hills. The only thing I don't like is that they cut down a beautiful eucalyptus that was there for as long as I've been alive.

Lone Tree Cemetery was established in 1868 and continues to serve as a burial ground today. It is a peaceful setting in the hills with a distant view of San Francisco. There are wild life in the area. Its a place to pay one's respects to those who have passed on. One day a year there is a community event... More

This is a very well kept and unique cemetery. If you like cemeteries this is perfect. Very quiet and quite the view. Read the stones and see the history. A great stop to unwind and take a moment....
