Check one off your bucket list as you hang glide off the 61 m (200 ft) high bluffs of Fort Funston National Park. If that seems like a bit too much, explore the beach or take a relaxing walk, watching the adrenaline junkies glide above you. This is a dog-friendly beach, so feel free to bring your pet(s). The sea can be pretty rough here, se be mindful of riptides if you decide to swim. A visit to Fort Funston National Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our San Francisco trip itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • This place is dog heaven, on leash, off leash my dogs love it. So many sights and smells for them to enjoy. And tons of dogs. It's always a little windy but the dogs don't mind. Be careful of the sand of you wear contacts. On a windy day that can cause problems.
  • Provides great walks and views of the beach. Unfortunately, it can be a bit chilly and suffers from the fog and cold air rolling Il in early in the day. A great place to take dogs!
  • Fort Funston is dog friendly. It's probably the only official off dog leash park in the city. Let your doggie off leash and let him be free to wander. Lots of trails and miles to walk. Watch out for the cliff though...that first step off is a doosie. Great views and fresh air! What more can you ask for?
  • i religiously stop at fort funston everytime I go to SFO !!!
  • This place is great, though the beach is kind of unkept, wish the city did more to keep it nice and tidy. Otherwise dogs are roaming wild and having a blast from top to bottom! :)
