the trail is parallel to the road and and some point you have to walk on the street but it is very beautiful walk.

Drove this with friends. Nice stops, beautiful views. Great opportunity to hang out with snacks and beverages at each stop. Made for a great afternoon! Highly recommended. We were out of the car more than in it!

Not really a trail. You have to walk on the side the paved 17 Mile Drive and sometimes even on the car lanes. The cars are moving fast, like 40mph. Most drivers here don't obey speed limit. Beautiful scenes but you'd better drive.

Not quite 5 stars because at some points you have to run along the road. Traffic can be really bad and there is almost no shoulder on the roadway. But the trail is great. Well marked with great sights!

Although foggy, we enjoyed the stops, the ocean views, Pebble Beach, Carmel Beach, and stopping at the pro shop. This is one of those “you have to dos” in California. Enjoy!

Less hiking and more leisurely stroll, this trail was easy with minimal elevation change. You're mostly walking along the side of the road unfortunately but despite this, the views of the ocean were amazing. You can actually turn around at Pebble Beach and create a shorter loop (which we did by accident due to a golf tournament) if you don't want to go point to point.

Beautiful drive... Always been a bummer that you can't take a motorcycle in.
