This is a great place to walk your dog where you are surrounded all the time with other dogs and their owners doing the same thing. It's next to the ocean so it's cool and the scenery is pleasant with some views of the ocean and good established trails.

Since it is a bit out of the way from the main attractions in San Francisco, it is not crowded at all where you can enjoy a leisurely walk/hike and still enjoy the pacific ocean. Along the way, take notice of the wild flowers and plants. It is located southwest of San Francisco, just across the San Francisco Golf club... More

This is wehre you are going to have an outstanding view off Golden Gate Bridge. I think it was a Military Barracks years ago. We sat and had a very nice bottle of Pinot Noir at the Restaurant there, watching the activity on the bridge & under the bridge. We loved it the rest & wine

Great place to walk dogs, watch gliders take off. Great view great walk. Locals use this place to walk dogs mostly off leash. On a Sunny day this place is glorious. Fabulous views of Western San Francisco, the Ocean. Great walk and if you want you can go down to the ocean. If you need a doggy fix this is... More

Probably the best dog park in the nation. It has everything! You want sand? Or a trail? through the woods? down to the beach? This place has it all

We are not dog owners and we did walk the paths here one time, but there were so many dogs it was not pleasant for us, but for dog owners I'm sure it is great. When our kids were little they liked to come and walk here because they still have bunkers that the kids can run and play in.... More

Great beach if you want to have a great time with your pooch! Bring a jacket because it can get chilly and it can be a long walk down to the sand.

Lots of room for dogs to run and explore off leash. This is a place you can go to again and again and still find areas you didn't know about before. Lots of trails, beach access, so many socialized dogs and happy dog people!

Amazing off leash hiking and beaching with your dog, avoid on weekends though. The most beautiful off leash area in the Bay Area. Couple of things to watch out for: a) the currents are STRONG, keep small dogs out of the surf -- splashing around in on waters edge is ok but stay close, especially at high tide b) 95%... More
