Explore the most popular dogs on leash trails near Monterey with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Nice trail with many opportunities to view wildlife and gorgeous rock formations. Also food and restrooms available along the way. An easy walk.

NOT A HIKE you pay $10.25 to enter what is basically a gated community and there are no trails. I’m disappointed in you, California state parks.

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.

I have experienced the amazing coastal views of Pebble Beach and 17 Mile Drive several times by way of the very popular scenic drive. However, on one wonderful visit with my uncle a number of years ago, we spent much of our time exploring the area on mountain bikes. It is a special memory I have of a family member who just recently passed. I always love returning to the Monterey Peninsula/Pebble Beach/Carmel area!

Jack's Peak should be a spot on your radar if you are hiking with a furry friend or two, just heard a tsunami warning, ❤️ Monterey Pines, or had a late lazy feed and want a place to hike that offers some mid day shade while you burn off that breakfast burrito, beignet or benedict on some rolling forest hills. Some excellent bay views spanning Pt Lobos to Moss Landing and across the big blue to Santa Cruz. If you rolled back time 12 million years, Jack's Peak would have been an island in the Pacific Ocean. Most of your hike will be absorbing the vibes of the endemic Monterey Pine Forest, peppered with just enough poison oak to keep you from daydreaming. Be prepared with $5 cash for self registered parking. Otherwise, just outside the county park gates, there are 10 or so roadside parallel parking spots if you don't mind hiking, biking or skating in. Doggie poo bags available at the entrance kiosk if you forgot your own.

Easy nice hike after work. Trail is well taken care of, pretty shady walk (as in trees). Pond was nice and lots of birdies chirping

This is a really beautiful trail to take kids of any age on. If you don't have anything better to do on weekend morning then check this trail out.

This is a neat little quiet quick loop. The pond wasn't really there as we haven't had any rain, but it was pretty and easy. I'll go back now that it's rained to check it out.
