This pathway easily accommodates walkers, joggers, and cyclists and exposes them to great scenery with the occasional bench for rest. Great way to spend an hour or more.

Very nice ride with sea view. Ride all the way from Monterey Cannery Row, up to Lover’s Point, a little further Point Pinos Lighthouse. Go around Pacific Grove, nice town.
