Okay, we didn’t walk all that way on our recent trip. And maybe you could do the distance, but you’d run into golf courses and restricted use around the Monterey Peninsula. But it’s quite easy to get from Monterey Wharf to Pacific Grove.
Here’s some of the trail from Monterey Wharf towards Pacific Grove. Several mini-parks are along the way. Walkable, bikeable or rent a pedaling carriage. You could kayak or sail or… It’s only a mile or mile and a half. Plenty of eating opportunities too, either restaurants or picnics.
In Carmel, we had the luxury of just staring at a beautiful beach and ocean in the morning.
