Great Walk with Dogs
Walked the southern 1/3 of this trail with two athletic Standard Poodles. The trail is officially "on leash", but half of the walkers we met had dogs off leash in the sections that curve up into the meadows away from the cliffs. The trail was dirt until we got to the golf course. It becomes paved for a mile or more above and below the Ritz Carleton. We passed two beaches (stairs down cliffs) where dogs were running off leash in the surf; however, the beaches are "officially "on leash" areas. Walkers share this trail with joggers and cyclists, but there's plenty of room to step aside for them. The scenery was spectacular. Be sure to bring a camera.
