The 200ft high bluffs on the most western edge of San Francisco, Fort Funston is one of the premier hang-gliding spots in the country. Networking trails make it ideal for accessible hiking, horseback riding, and dog walking. Please be advised that if your pet gets stuck on the bluffs, do not go after it, the risk of falling is greater for you than your pet.
