Watch for poison oak, otherwise great trail thru the Pine groves.

Love this trail. So beautiful with wild flowers ( 3/25/2017) and sound of the waves the entire trail.

The paths were really narrow so it was hard to walk with my husband. There were also a lot of people and it was hard to relax.

Really scenic trail with the ocean, wildlife and plant life all along the route. Very easy walking trail but you can't beat the views

As good as it gets!!! A walk along the Pacific Ocean for 4 miles. Not too many people. Nice sturdy trails. Took my dog with me and stopped at the cemetery on the way back. Beautiful! Many benches along the way. Will be doing this one again soon!

Nice walk on boardwalk and some spots for tide pools exploration and beach fun. Despite being labelled as an on-leash only beach (it is required by law and signage), some fools let their dogs off leash and without proper voice control. On two separate occasions during the same walk, I had to keep two dogs away from my dog, one I had to hold away by the collar and wait for its owner to retrieve it; and it was very frustrating. Despite that, my dog appeared to have a good time otherwise - we had to sometimes go on the boardwalk to avoid other off-leash dogs who were obviously not under voice control and owners weren't paying attention... So if you have a reactive dog, you may need to be on the lookout for irresponsible owners.

The PG loop is nice but correctly the MPR Trail is 29 miles from Castroville to Pacific Grove. Great urban trail and at low tide you can opt to walk the entire beach. I like to pick it up by the old Ft Ord. Free, safe parking and easy access. Suggest using the actual trail on parts and then the beach for others to break up the out-n-back scenery. Lot of ways to cut the trail is easy and enjoyable sections based on your mood.

Very easy path with great views of the ocean! I would forego the loop and instead just turn around when we felt like it. It's more of an out and back trail. We did see seals and sea otters though!!

Very easy trail with beautiful views! We saw a sea lion sunbathing on a rock. The colors of the ocean water were spectacular! Lots of rocks to climb on and tide pools to explore!

Wonderful hike! Beautiful part of California.

One of the most relaxing trails I ever hiked. The sound of the ocean was lulling. Saw California sea lions, harbor seals, elephant seals, deer, whales, an eagle, squirrels, crabs, and tons of other wildlife!
