“Good, safe walking”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Very populated, safe & scenic. We walked everyday - great place to people-watch, too. The trail connects the town with the Bay, locals use it too.

“Great trail”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Had a great time cycling the trail this past holiday weekend. It was wonderful in the morning and became crazy busy by mid day. Try to get out early to enjoy before mass crowds arrive. Unfortunately it's freezing cold in the morning so bring gloves.

“What a trail!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

I love cycling and wow this is cool. Cycling through the city on the trail then roads and by the ocean. Absolutely loved it - and would definitely recommend it.

“lovely views - lots of seals along the way”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

as soon as we arrived in Monterey we got about and found the trail. yes it goes through old wharf, cannery row shops and bars but you follow it around and then you get the on the coast and all the views, waves crashing and the seals along the way. it's windy so certainly take a tip and do "layers of clothing". we walked to lovers point and back - about
a couple of miles each way at a nice strolling pace. lots of beautiful people doing their skateboarding and running, and babies in buggies and dogs !! even saw the army running on the way back !!

all in all a lovely few hours, followed by a drink in a bar and nachos. off to carmel and pebble beach 17 mile drive tomorrow,
