When Fido is ready for a tail wagging, tongue hanging stroll through coastal California, take him for a drive along this picturesque stretch of highway through the communities of Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach, CA. Pick up a map when you pay the toll required for entry and make several stops along the way for photos of the scenic views.

    This was our first time taking the dog on this drive. All pullouts are dog friendly, some of the trails/beaches are too but mostly on leash. That was fine for ours as he is not yet an off leash dog. He loved walking on the trails we went on, especially by Spanish Bay Beach.

    Nice drive for humans

    We've done this drive several times and it is gorgeous. However, it can get really crowded & there's not much for a dog there. Limited photo ops are about it. Trails are pretty much off limits. The dogs will spend most of the time in your car. Great for humans, meh for dogs.

    Nice for Car Ride

    This is an amazing drive for humans, for the dog it is good. The downside is that dogs are not allowed on the trails. They can go in picnic areas and the pullouts, but ultimately you'll spend most of the time in the car with doggie buddy.

    Refreshing Drive

    What an amazing ride. I would definitely recommend this drive for anyone who loves to take photos or just loves amazing views. Plenty of spaces to pull over with Fido.
