Fort Funston is one of the very best outdoor, off leash dog runs in all of the greater San Francisco area. It's unfortunate that parts of the cliffs and beaches have fallen away off the Great Highway, but there's still lots to see. Parking can...More

Amazing views of the Pacific Ocean, a few benches to enjoy a picnic. Multiple trails, both paved and natural. Dogs may go off leash here, but make sure to clean up after them. Because it's SF coast the area can be chilly, so I recommend...More

Wish I could give this spot a higher recommendation. I visit Fort Funston often with both my family and friends and our pets! Dogs here should be off-leash as there are always lots of friendly dogs here and there is plenty of safe space to...More
