From Rails to Trails: The Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail
The Monterey Bay Coastal Recreational Trail runs some 18 miles from Castroville to Pacific Grove passing through Fisherman’s Wharf, Cannery Row, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and downtown Monterey. Thousands of residents, visitors and commuters use the trail every day but this popular segment of the California Coastal Trail almost didn’t happen. In the possession of the Southern Pacific Railroad Company for almost a century, the land was initially slated for major development until the newly formed California Coastal Commission stepped in and preserved both the trail and the coastline for future generations to enjoy.
