The Cemetery Path is an area of the Courtyard in Resident Evil which leads to the Cemetery . The path is not featured in the original 1996 version


One of the Guard Dog Statues found in the Cemetery Path.

The Cemetery Path is an outside passage that lead towards the Cemetery gate. Two statues are placed one each side of the path. There are two signposts that were placed separately on this passage which, if positioned correctly, will open the Cemetery gate.


To unlocked the Cemetery gate, the two signposts that are placed separated around the path must be rotated to the right direction. The two statues will also rotate automatically when each signposts are rotated:

  • Red signpost - Turn to West (Path of Revenge)
  • Blue signpost - Turn to North (Valley of Destruction)

On the end two statues of dogs have to be turned back to each other to solve the puzzle.

In Chris's scenario, if the player managed to get the Radio from Richard Aiken, a scene will play where Captain Wesker will call in, giving a garbled warning about a monster in chains located at the Cabin inside the woods.

Alternatively, in Jill's scenario, if the player got the radio, they will hear a garbled warning about the monster from Barry.
