Exercise & Sightseeing at its best
This is a great, paved walking/joggin/biking trail that goes from Monterey at the north to Pacific Grove at the south. Poop bag dispensers can be found every so often and people seemed to be very good about picking up after their pets. Great way to see both the fishing/canning aspect of Monterey, as well as local marine life (otters, seals), natural land and seascape, and the beautiful homes in the Pacific Grove area. While you can fully enjoy a long walk by staying on this path, you can head into downtown Pacific Grove for an equally enjoyable stroll through the charming commercial and residential districts, as you head back toward Monterey. It's only 3 to 4 miles roundtrip, so is nice workout for both you and the pooch.
