This is the short version of our Fort Funston walk (the long version is here). Depending on the tide and the height of the sand it's sometimes not easy to get past a couple of sewage outlet pipes. Today's walk was wet with a high tide so we turned left at the bottom of the sand ladder and just walked along the beach and back. The longer version is to turn right and complete a three mile loop.

Sand Ladder at Fort Funston

Rudy pegs it down Sand Ladder Trail - the easiest way down to the beach but no so much fun on the way back up.
