  • Are there bikes for rent?

    You most definitely can rent bikes for use along the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreational Trail. There are many to choose from, such as beach cruisers, mountain bikes, hybrids, tandems, and carbon road bikes. Included in the price are helmets, maps, and locks. The Trail hugs the shoreline from Monterey Bay Aquarium to Lover’s Point. From there, you’ll pick up a bike lane, which is mainly flat.
  • How long does the trail stretch?

    Covering 18 scenic miles, the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail goes from the town of Pacific Grove in the south to the town of Castroville in the north. Once a Southern Pacific Railway train route, the picturesque thoroughfare boasts several attractions, everything from the shops and restaurants of Cannery Row and Fisherman’s Wharf to historic sites and Monterey Bay Aquarium.
