Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail

Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This rail-trail immerses you in the culture of the sea. If you are lucky, otters will be frolicking in the kelp off the coast of Pacific Grove when you pass. There is no doubt that sparkling sailboats will be moored in Monterey Bay near Fisherman’s Wharf, and seabirds take wing over the estuary at the trail’s northern end in Seaside. Surface: Asphalt and concrete, with a dirt walking path alongside the paved trail in Pacific Grove."

This is a great trail so I give it a good rating. It is mostly a 2 lane bike path with no cars. Some sections of it go on city streets. It goes along the inland side of the coastal sand dunes. Watch for suicidal ground squirls running across the path in front of you. It actually goes several miles farther north to Marina CA, where it connects to a bike route on roads with good bike lanes that ends about a mile later at Marina State Beach. None of the maps available show this route accurately. Some leave parts off and others fail to mention that parts of it are on city streets.

This trail is amazing!! So many things to see and teeming with life from the marine animals to tourists out and about. Very bicycle friendly stores line the path with ocean scenery all along the way.
