Fort Funston to Stern Grove Professional Review and Guide
"Watch hang gliders soar on ocean breezes at the launching site in Fort Funston and take in sweeping vistas from a former military observation point. Begin this diverse San Francisco stroll on foggy, bluff-top dunes at a defunct military site, now part of Golden Gate National Recreation Area. On your way to historic Stern Grove you’ll pass two freshwater lakes, dip into sunny and protected glens, and cross residential neighborhoods on mostly paved trails. A steep 115-foot climb in the last 0.1 mile gives you a sense of accomplishment."
