I'm glad this area is open to runners, walkers, sometimes cyclist who are careful of the people on the trail. You can walk your dogs on these trail. Most of the people you meet are friendly.

This is a lovely trail for taking a walk. Quite busy at certain times of the day, but everyone is friendly and enjoying the outdoors. Bring a jacket, no matter which month, as it can get a little damp

This was a great trail to run and bike on as it overlooks the water most of the way. Cuts right through Cannery Row and Old Monterey. Seamed clean and well policed for safety.
