Since Outer Sunset is directly on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, it can get quite breezy sometimes. Combine this with San Francisco's mild temperatures and weather conditions and you are not likely to experience extreme hot or cold temperatures while walking with your pup.
While the majority of Outer Sunset is artificial terrain, there are a few greenways and easy access to Golden Gate Park, the beach, and the ocean! This makes for a good balance between artificial and natural terrain. However, if you and your pup aren't looking for a greenway for your walk, the residential areas of Outer Sunset do have well-maintained sidewalks. This will help decrease the risk to you and your pup while navigating high-traffic times like rush hour. Unfortunately, the residential areas don't have many trees, so it may get a little warm on particularly sunny days.
Like many San Francisco neighborhoods, Outer Sunset does have quite a few hills. Specifically, as you move to the east, you will experience several gradual or steep inclines.The boundaries of Outer Sunset include Lincoln Way and Golden Gate Park to the north, 19th Avenue to the east, and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Sunset Boulevard is a major roadway within this neighborhood.
Sunset Boulevard, a major roadway that runs through Outer Sunset, also has green space and a walking trail on either side. On the western border of the neighborhood, you will also find the Lower Great Highway Trail, another long trail that follows the Great Highway and the Pacific coast.
Finally, immediately to the north of Outer Sunset, residents and pedestrians can easily access Golden Gate Park where you will find a few off-leash areas for your pup to explore.
