Hike Description:

Getting there: From southbound CA 35 in San Francisco, pass John Muir Drive, then take the first right (signed Fort Funston). Bear right and continue to the parking lot. Meet near hang gliders.

Although with the ocean visible at all times you'll never be lost, there's plenty of unpredictability in these dunes. A wrong turn off the main trail might bring you to a dense thicket of willow, with a 5 foot tall passage worn under the branches. This dark secret tunnel delivers you, blinking, back into the bright sunlight of the dunes. It's an Alice in Wonderland kind of experience. Following our adventure in the dunes we will cross the main road and head towards Lake Merced because you know we haven't walked quite enough. Lake Merced is a 4.5 mile loop.

After that, I know we will be quite parched so we will make our way to the Riptide for a tasty beverage...or two.
