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.

Pretty views, walking along the beach and trails was nice but eventually we had to walk along the road, narrow and heavy traffic.

When planning to drive here account for weather. We came on a misty afternoon, still had beautiful scenic spots but a few of them were covered by the fog. Definitely plan to go back on a bright sunny day!
