We did the trail backwards-parking not easy to find and trail is shared and crowded on a Sunday afternoon. Once we got further out it was great. Left off last couple miles cause it was close to highway and not pleasant after the scenic part in Fort Ord.

A few crosswalks you have to get off the bike for, but otherwise a great trail.

awesome bike ride! I noticed it connects to another trail near Nashua Molera, which I think takes you through Castroville, my next attempt.

Spectacular! I believe this is the finest trail in my world! Everyone at every level of activity can enjoy and admire the abundance of sights and amenities. Durable signs and plaques share fascinating historical and environmental information. Restrooms and benches are abundant, as well as outstanding places to eat. The former Monterey train depot has an excellent food market/deli/counter-service, with plentiful seating indoors and outdoors. Bicycling is both easy in the flat areas and excitingly challenging over the high dunes. This is a must-see and must-do! Bravo to everyone who makes this trail possible and who maintains it so well!

I was a student at CSUMB and this trail is awesome! I would stay away from anything north of Marina. But from Marina all the way into 17 mile drive, is a great path for a bike ride!
