Fort Funston

Scenic Area by the Beach

Skyline Blvd (Hwy 35)
(west of Lake Merced)
San Francisco, CA 94132


Fort Funston is a popular dog-walking spot, so it's common to see many a dripping wet dog, happily chewing a piece of driftwood or trotting in the sand. Also common are the occasional windsurfer, horseback riders, and just about anybody looking to enjoy the dramatic cliffside view. A popular destination from Fort Funston is to make it to Ocean Beach; along the way check out the flora and fauna, which are some of the most interesting in the Bay Area.
