Hold on to your hat. Fort Funston features 200 foot high sandy bluffs on San Franciscos southwest coast where the winds blow reliably wildly. Be aware that its a steep, strenuous hike down to the beach and back up. A network of trails make it ideal for hiking and horseback riding. Dog owners will be happy to know they can take leashes off here. It is also home to the Fort Funston Native Plant Nursery.

Great place to bring your dogs and to just enjoy the scenery. Not much for hiking but great for walking.

As far as urban hikes go this is a great stretch. Easy to add the lake loop and in the summer a non fire on the beach is awesome.
