Hold on to your hat. Fort Funston features 200 foot high sandy bluffs on San Francisco

Lots of traffic especially east side. Cut through Harding golf course for a breath of fresh air
It's a nice paved road circuit, but too many cars do go by here since it's right next to the main Streets and highway. the noise here is so loud that it gets you to the point where you wish you could find a place that was quiet. bring earphones to drown out the noise. Definitely safe to do it considering you don't need to cross the street in oncoming traffic.
Fort Funston is wonderful if you're a dog owner! The walk down to the beach can be steep, but the walk along the beach is easy and beautiful. On windy days, you can watch hang gliders, too. There are little lights after dusk so make sure to bring a flashlight if you come late - it can be difficult to find the trail back up to the parking lot!

Super fun beach for well behaved dogs and their people. Beautiful and vast majority of people are great about cleaning up after their dogs.
If you walk north on the beach, you may see a fun rustic living beach museum which is crafted into the wall by random folks to which you can add found objects.
Best place ever for dog owners. Lots of room for
your pup to run and play and socialize. You can stay on the trails up top or go down to the beach. Basically a large natural dog park :) If you don't want to be around dogs, don't go here. There is always a lot.
Great for dogs, not so much if you are dog-less
