Nothing special, but can be easily combined with the Golden Gate Park loop.

Good but can get plenty crowded on the weekend which is,when I did it.

Did this at night in the rain and it was still fun. Great looking trees and a surprise basketball court.

Beautiful views of the bay. Not extremely crowded as most of the tourists don't make it this far from the wharf. Part of the pier is barricaded off due to the deterioration of the railing. Second half is a nice stroll on a paved path through some interesting trees.

Walked it about 9 p.m. A few of the restaurants and bars were still open, but most shops and other tourists had called it a night. I did see a couple of large rats that looked to have a nest under the sidewalk near the beach.

Great hike for families - the kids loved running up and sliding down the sand dunes. Lots of dogs having fun playing off leash. Beautiful views. Better on a less windy day when the sand isn’t whipping around

Really close to road and loud traffic. Beautiful ocean scenery though.

One of the best urban walks, period.

Stunning views on a nice day.

It’s a great trail and a great view. But, if you go on the small trails up higher, they are very steep and some may find them pretty scary.

very pleasant and easy walk! very distracted by all the cute dogs. Don't come here if you want a challenging walk/hike.

One of our happy places, especially the leash free beach for the pups.

Sweet walk with the dogs any day of the week

My favorite hike in the city. Head to the left if you’re more interested in hiking than dogs.

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!!!

Cool, park, but has a side walk part, at one point of the trail, that has traffic noise driving through

Great easy trail, especially at sunset.

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.

Had completed a 6.5 mile out and back by Ocean Beach, starting from Sloat Blvd parking lot and going north all the way to Cliff House. Dog friendly, easy and nice walk by 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.
