Sunset Trail at Fort Funston

Sunset Trail at Fort Funston Professional Review and Guide

"Sights on the ground and in the sky enliven the Sunset Trail, which leads hikers to historic Battery Davis and overlooks Ocean Beach. The fort is a favorite of hang gliders and dog lovers as well as hikers. Fort Funston hunkers in the windswept dunes at the southern boundary of San Francisco’s Ocean Beach. Once a unit in the extensive system of military defenses built along the coastline to protect the valuable port in San Francisco Bay, it’s now part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and enjoys a second incarnation as a hang-gliding hot spot and a center for canine cavorting."
