Southern Pacific Railroad Right-of-Way

Spanish Bay to Del Monte Blvd., Pacific Grove

September, 2018 by crankybeach

A friend and I parked one car on Del Monte near Egan, then drove the other car to a spot just outside the PG gate on 17 Mile Drive. We parked next to the fire road gate leading into the Rip Van Winkle Open Space. We then crossed the street and found the (unmarked) beginning of the trail. We made our way between the back sides of some businesses along Sunset Drive and the edge of the Spanish Bay golf course, crossed Sunset Drive at Crocker, and picked up the trail heading north.

Just after we crossed Sinex Avenue, we arrived at the site of the Asilomar station (such as it was) with a rebuilt replica of the tiny passenger shelter and an explanatory sign. Continuing north, the trail eventually turns into a narrow street, appropriately named Railroad Way, which terminates at Lighthouse Avenue. After crossing Lighthouse, we skirted the edges of the El Carmelo Cemetery and came out on the golf course, now heading east. We followed the path, crossed 17 Mile Drive and finally came out on Del Monte, close to where we had parked the first car. We followed the former track bed as far as a fence with a locked gate, on the other side of which is the mobile home park whose apparently-unnamed driveway (private property, no trespassing, as the sign says) continues the former train route to Lovers Point.

We picked up the car we had left on Del Monte, and drove it back over to where we had left the other car.

My step counter told me we had walked 1.7 miles total.

Although none of the trail is marked, it was not at all difficult to follow.

For anyone interested in historical information (and photographs) of all the railroads around the Monterey Bay, has a wealth of information.

Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail

Camping on the coast

September, 2017 by edfratus

I was traveling north on Highway 1 when my artist's eye led me down to the beach. The beauty of the white sand beach and wind swept trees prompted me to pitch my tent and make a painting. It is truly a beautiful place and urge people to come see this place themselves.

Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail

Very Crowded but Beautiful

February, 2016 by leatherpounder

I parked in Sand City to start my ride, I used the Costco parking lot, I wouldn't do that again. Instead I would start near Lovers Point, there is lots of free parking either along the road or various pullouts just past it, then head back towards monterey. The most spectacular part of the ride was heading south along the road with a great bike lane all the way to Pebble beach and 17 mile drive. The Ocean views are breathtaking!!


Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail

Better than anything SoCal has....

October, 2015 by piloti951

This bike ride blows away anything down in SoCal, by a long shot. The views are simply stunning, from end to end. My ride began in Marina, CA at Reservation Road. Once you cross the fence just under Highway 1....the fun begins. Heading south through rolling sand dunes, I saw very little to no mid-morning foot or bike traffic, until I reached the Seaside/Monterey boundary, at Dennis the Menace Park. Lots of shade and room to stop and take-in the fresh coastal breeze. The trail continues just behind crowded Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row. The wide, double-lanes makes it easy to pass and avoid the obvious foot tourists. The trail technically "ends" in Pacific Grove, at Lover's Point - but I continued on the road, via Ocean View Blvd, to Asilomar(Sunset Drive).

Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail

Outstanding Ocean Views!! Great for most riders.

March, 2015 by jimba1974

My wife is a beginning rider and other than a little apprehension with the slight inclines and declines she did great!!

The trail is very well kept with slight inclines here and there surrounded by great restaurants and shops (The Old Wharf and Cannery Row) with one of the most beautiful views of the ocean that you'll ever see. I had a hard time figuring out how to find parking from THIS site, but once I MapQuested "Monterey Bay Coastal Trail" I was able to stumble across some parking while following the MapQuest's navigation. It's a little over an hour drive for us and we can't wait to go back...tomorrow in fact!! :)

Difficulty - Easy to Moderate.
Scenery - OUTSTANDING!!!
Amenities (food/restaurants/shops) - Great
Trail Condition - Great (asphalt and concrete)

Parking - You just have to MapQuest like I say and find it. Some is free, others you pay. Once you find a great parking location store it in your navigation.

Have's great!!

Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail

Awesome part of the world

Can't beat riding along the pacific and Monterrey bay

Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail

Nice trail from Lover's point to Seaside.

January, 2015 by trail53link

Even though there are many street crossings, the trail surface is excellent and the scenery is beautiful until you get to Seaside. I turned around at Seaside because I got tired of the traffic noise, hilly terrain, and exhaust fumes. This trail is classed as a "rail trail" but it's much too winding and hilly to have followed the actual rail bed.

Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail

Pacific Grove Update

December, 2014 by stevec9000

One of the best rides around. Bikes are allowed from the start at Lovers Point in Pacific Grove and are available at many points in Pacific Grove and Cannery Row. You can continue south around Ocean View Blvd and Sunset Drive past the Asilomar Beach on to the 17 mile drive which allows bikes at no charge.

Treacherous Stretch of Monterey Bike Trail

August, 2014 by 7keith6

I have enjoyed this trail many times over the past 20 years, but I recently was thrown off my bike and suffered a concussion because part of the trail is very treacherous due to large underlying tree roots. If you are biking from Monterey through Seaside and Marina to the northern terminus at Highway #1 and Del Monte Blvd. do not proceed past Beach Road in Marina. The next 1/2 mile stretch is very treacherous. I have urged Monterey County to either fix this section of the trail it or close it. I have received no response from them.

Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail

One of the Best

August, 2014 by dmikeh

Fantastic trail for running, walking, cycling, sightseeing, or anything pedestrian! Monterey is an extremely pedestrian friendly place and the views and wildlife on this trail are second to none!

Ohlone Loop Trail

A European Cuckoo was seen here

July, 2014 by rayandpat

We missed a chance to see a Cuckoo near this trail by a week in 2012. It was only the second time ever that a European Cuckoo has been spotted in the United States and it stayed for a week. People came from all over the States to see it. Even without a Cuckoo, this is a wonderful trail to walk. We saw many water birds in and near the slough and hawks overhead looking for prey. The walk around the slough is green and varied. It is dog friendly (on leash) and accessible for wheelchairs and scooters. It pairs very nicely with the Watsonville Slough Trail. And a visit here should definitely include the Nature Center next to Ramsey Park and at the beginning of the Watsonville Slough Trail.
