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.

Nice views. Lots of people and other dogs. You can make this walk as long as you want by accessing the beach.

Great beach for dogs. My dog enjoyed every second of the hike and the beach. Most dogs and owners there are usually nice. Our dogs really playful so he doesn't really know when to stop when he sees other dogs, he stayed on a leash almost the entire hike but we let him run free on the beach. There's a point where there's water for the dogs which is something we weren't familiar with but really appreciated. Definitely take your four legged fur child here, won't regret it!

It was a good enough trail but had too many dog-walkers with dogs who were not on leashes.
