If you'd like to feel like you are fortunate enough to live in Carmel, stroll along Scenic Road. The walkway hugs the beach and coast as you wind through the neighborhood. Homes with lots of character, fabulous views, and many beach access points are among the highlights.

Carmel is well-know and a beautiful town. Walking or jogging along the hallway at sunset is very pleasant.

Beautiful and free! Houses along the walk are not huge like 17 mile drive but still amazing. Even more character if you ask me. And the ocean views are simply amazing!

The off-street walking path is easily found at the bottom of 8th street. It's quite level with only a couple slide inclines. The views west were bang on the water and the views east were $$$ homes. Both were equally pretty! There are also several points along the walk where you can take stairs down to the beach itself then... More

This is a nice walkway and a great way to walk along the ocean without getting sand in your shoes! There are no street lights here, so bring a flashlight if you plan on walking after sunset.

Loved my walk with my Vida - minature schnauzer. Not crowded for Saturday morning (4-17). Only dislike, need a few dog waste bags to offer to the forgetful owners.

What is NOT to like on Scenic Drive. There isn't a bad house on the block and some Hollywood history. It overlooks the beach and so great to see the dogs and people interacting.
