“Better than 17 mile Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

What a lovely walk or drive with the crashing ocean on one side and beautiful homes of all kinds from cozy cottages to McMansions on the other. Don't miss the Frank LLoyd Wright house along the way. Great photo ops at every step.

“Breathtaking view...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We rode our bikes on this magnificent road. It is nothing short of spectacular. With the beautiful winding road along the California coast, driving speed is very slow (and believe me, that is part of the charm). We loved it so much, we did this trail 5 times over our 5 day trip. 4 times on a bicycle and once by car. There are so many beautiful scenes, many photo opportunities here with funky architecture to the left (its a one way street) and the Beautiful Pacific coastline to the right... It is breathtaking beautiful! A must do when visiting Carmel by the sea!

“Comfortable walk and level”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

But be aware it is at the bottom of the hill.... He who comes down must go up.
Take it slow, look at the homes, enjoy the ocean

“Very beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

One side of the road is the ocean and beach, the other side is a potpourri of gingerbread homes of various architectural design. A pleasure to look at them.

Easy access to beach. Beautiful homes and views! The day we were there there was no traffic or backups. Easy to walk as we'll.
