Formerly this area known as the Lake Merced Military Reservation, the fort is now a protected area within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA). It was named in honor of Frederick Funston, a General in the United States Army, and includes an artillery battery bearing his name.

Fort Funston features 200 foot high sandy bluffs on San Francisco's southwest coast where the winds blow reliably wildly. Be aware that it's a steep, strenuous hike down to the beach and back up. Once we reach the top we can enjoy the scenic Fort Funston Beach

Fort Funston Trail is best known for its enormous, dog-friendly beach as well as its cliff-clinging takeoff point for hang gliders. But it’s also a terrific place to go on a 1.5-mile scenic beach stroll. Wind-sculpted sand dunes, serrated golden cliffs.

The area is covered with a network of trails suitable for hiking or horseback riding. The strong, steady winds make the cliffs overlooking the beach a popular site for hang gliding.

Battery Davis is essentially an artificial hill built into the seaside cliffs above Ocean Beach. It’s an old heavy-caliber gun battery, built just before the Second World War.
