Daly City BART to Fort Funston to the Riptide

We will meet at 12:30 at the Daly City BART station. At 12:40 we will head out on John Daly Blvd. to Thornton State Beach and possibly Mussel Rock, before heading on the trails to Fort Funston. At Fort Funston we will see the hang gliders and the dogs frolicking on the beach and we will do some of the trails there. Then we will head up toward Ocean Beach for happy hour at our end point, the Riptide at 46th and Taraval. Estimated arrival time at th Riptide is 5ish.

Friendly, well behaved dogs are welcome and the Riptide is a dog friendly bar.

For those wishing to return the starting point, the L Taraval can get you to Civic Center Station where you can transfer to BART or you can transfer from the L to the 28 MUNI on 19th Ave which also goes to DC BART.

Prepare for some uneven terrain, beach walking, stairs in the sand, and to get sand in your shoes. Bring a towel or something to sit on if you wish.

Latecomers can try to catch up with us by heading west on John Daly Blvd toward the ocean. We will make a stop at the Starbucks on John Daly Blvd/West Lake Shopping Center and we will also stop at Thornton State Beach for a bit, so look for us there.

We will take a lunch break so bring some food if you will be hungry.

Hope to see you there!

    Hi all, I'm still not sure if I'll make it tomorrow, I'm recovering from a bad flu. I'm really looking forward to a nice walk in the sun though, so hopefully I'll be there. If not I might have to change my RSVP at the last moment...

    Hi Suzan. What time do you think you'll be at Thornton State Beach? I would like to meet you there instead of Daly City BART. Thanks.
