A dog friendly, urban walk with outstanding views of the Pacific Coast and Monterey Bay. Beyond Lovers Point in Pacific Grove, there is a rugged dirt trail hugging the coast for the adventurous. Alternatively, one can also walk the Ocean Blvd and still enjoy the scenic view. Part of the 18 mile coastal trail from Castroville to Pacific Grove, this 7 mile out and back segment covers the 3.5 mile section from San Carlos Beach in Monterey to Point Pinos Lighthouse in Pacific Grove.
