The Southern Pacific Railroad Right of Way passes through residential neighborhoods on the west side of Pacific Grove, providing a nice walking and biking spot for residents and visiting tourists to the area. The trail is still owned by the railroad and is an unimproved dirt path with wood chips in some locations. The trail passes through the Municipal Golf course, crosses Lighthouse Blvd. and then runs through the forested neighborhoods before crossing Sunset Dr. A connecting trail leads to 17 Mile Drive along the Spanish Bay Golf Course. The trail provides access to Asilomar Conference Center and other trails that lead to the beach. There are no facilities along the trail and parking is limited to street parking, which is plentiful in the area.
