Bike & In-Line skate on the Monterey Bay Coastal Trail

When you stay at Monterey Bay Inn, you'll be just one mile from this well-traveled paved path that originally featured Southern Pacific Railway train tracks. The Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail stretches 18 miles and offers stunningly scenic ocean views. Activities include walking, jogging, and viewing wildlife along the coastal front. You can also rent transportation, like bikes and surreys, which are covered quadricycles that can accommodate six people. What's more, you'll be able to engage in such fun water-based things to do as kayaking and paddle boarding.
