Hold on to your hat. Fort Funston features 200 foot high sandy bluffs on San Francisco’s southwest coast where the winds blow reliably wildly. No surprise it is one of the premier hang-gliding spots in the country. 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.
I recommend that you keep your dogs on their leash until you've made your way down to the beach. A good friend of Beagles by the Bay had her doxen jump off a bluff and was seriously injured. This is a wonderful place to play but safety is paramount.
