  Hang Glider at Fort Funston
by guell

Favorite thing: We love coming to Fort Funston for the short hikes and for the scenery. Hang gliders soar back and forth on the air currents rising off the cliffs, and they come so close that we can actually make out the pilots’ faces!

Fort Funston is also popular with dog owners because it is one of the few places that dog owners have official permission to let their dogs off the leash.

The winds that give the hang gliders lift also tend to make it a bit cold, so bring a jacket just in case!

The Fort Funston parking area is just off Skyline Boulevard (Route 35) just south of John Muir Drive.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
