As good as it gets!!! A walk along the Pacific Ocean for 4 miles. Not too many people. Nice sturdy trails. Took my dog with me and stopped at the cemetery on the way back. Beautiful! Many benches along the way. Will be doing this one again soon!
The PG loop is nice but correctly the MPR Trail is 29 miles from Castroville to Pacific Grove. Great urban trail and at low tide you can opt to walk the entire beach. I like to pick it up by the old Ft Ord. Free, safe parking and easy access. Suggest using the actual trail on parts and then the beach for others to break up the out-n-back scenery. Lot of ways to cut the trail is easy and enjoyable sections based on your mood.

My hometown. I always enjoy a walk on this trail.
Dog friendly with lots of great vista points. Heavily traveled by bicyclists, or at least on this October Sunday. Not as accommodating for walkers because it's hard to relax while keeping clear of two- wheel traffic. Loved the views and the wildflower and the salt air.
