Owner description: Popular hiking trail running along the Pacific Grove and Monterey coast.
Reviewed October 4, 2013

This walking / bike trail is great! You can park is several locations ~ either in the convenient nearby city parking lots or up a few blocks and walk down to the shore. The trail (wide enough for Quad-pedal-bikes and strollers too) was built over the original Southern Pacific Railroad tracks along the shore. You can walk it of ride it from Marina to Pacific Grove~ the area mostly taloized is from the Monterey Beachs and both Wharf's Past Old Cannery Row attractions to the "Lovers Point" beach in Pacific Grove. It is less than a mile and totally delightful. Feel free to bring you family pooch too.

A great way to get around and see the area and bypass all of the pedestrians. I highly recommend renting bikes and taking off.

This is a great trail for walking especially for families. You can walk to the fishermen's wharf for food and shopping. There is ample seating located along the trail for rest for those who may have limitations.

One cautionary note is that bicyclist use the trail too, be careful because you can't hear them approaching from behind and you could get run over.
