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.

This has to be the most beautiful dog park in the world!! I love taking my dogs here and they love coming here too!! They even have made their own friends. What I also love about this park is that you can go to the beach and make it a very long walk or if you're not in the mood you can make it a short walk!!! Words cannot describe Fort Funston!!!

This place is a dream for dog owners. Dogs are free off leash. There is a nice hike on sand down to the water. Love. Love. Love.
