The Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail extends for about one mile from the Monterey Bay Aquarium to Lovers Point. The Pacific Grove section of the trail is part of the recreation trail network which runs from Marina to Pacific Grove. Formerly located on the Southern Pacific Railroad Right-of-Way, the trail has separate walking and cycling paths. It serves as a major walking, jogging, and bicycling route along the northeastern coastline of the city.
The Shoreline Park Network (23.4 acres) includes all parks and recreational areas located on the coastal edge of the city. These facilities serve contiguous neighborhoods, the community as a whole, and regional recreation needs.
