Event comments

This Monterey County walk passes the historic Carmel Mission. The Mission was founded by Fr. Junipero Serra and is where he is buried. The Mission is the church of an active Catholic parish. After the mission you walk though a local park, through the trees, and then down the main street of Carmel. You will pass quaint shops, art studios and restaurants on your way to the Carmel Beach. The trail goes along beautiful Carmel Bay with vistas of Pebble Beach and Point Lobos, along the Carmel River Lagoon and finishes by passing through residential areas of unique homes.
