“A Great Little Walk or Longer Hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

This is a beautiful city/marine trail. You can go a long way and there are ocean views and town views and surprisingly, it is not too crowded.

“Incredible!”

You can walk or bike from one end of Monterey to the other. Absolutely beautiful walk, especially from Fisherman's Wharf area all the way to Lover's Point in Pacific Grove.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Magnificent views of waves crashing over rocks. Lots of birds, and an occasional otter. Sea lions barking and ice plant blooming. Lovely trails to walk. Bikers have a bike path.
