Need to Know
There are packs of coyotes in this park, and they sometimes attack small dogs. They mostly roam in upper, western part of the park and are usually not seen in broad daylight
This trail is not spectacular, but it is a pleasant run, not far above the water line and close to the sights and sounds of the surf. There are a few good sized rocks off-shore. The waves sometimes splash over these, or high in the air. The shoreline below the road was lined with boulders to prevent erosion. There is little sand.
During the day, this road is a good place to let your dog run free. Coyotes usually don't come down this far, but I would keep my dog close as evening approaches.
Near the mid-point of the trail, there is a small, unique rock shelter with wooden benches. It is a nice, shady place from which to watch the surf.
The road ends above colorful boulders at the edge of a long sandy beach. At low tide, the beach extends all the way to Fort Funston. Volunteers have built a solid, but difficult and narrow, trail down to the sand. On a warm summer day, there may be a few people on the beach, but even then, you'll not have to go very far to have a huge section of beach all to yourself.
