Weekend Sherpa: Hikes (With the Dog) at Fort Funston
If you notice Sparky clicking his paws with his eyes shut tight, there's a good chance he's thinking, There's no place like Funston. San Francisco's popular Fort Funston is a dog's dream, bringing pooches out tails a-wagging, as they enjoy the windswept dunes. Hang gliders share the area, taking to the sky like flying monkeys. Bring your best friend for a quick hike down to the parks's wide-open beach. To get there, you and your four-legged pal will have to hoof and woof down a sand ladder. Then, relish in this magical canine coastline backed by 30-foot high cliffs as fetch is played in all directions. Fairy tails do come true!
