Description
Lynn Rip Van Winkle Open Space is a large dog-friendly park in Pacific Grove, California. It is ideally situated between Sunset Drive and Forest Lodge Road with the physical address listed as Congress Avenue. This off-leash park is located in the heart of the city yet retains the feel of a nature reserve. The picturesque landscape is relatively narrow in scope at only 2,200 feet in length and a width of 400 feet, but it is jam-packed with incredible scenery and many well-landscaped trails for you and your dog to enjoy.

The hiking trails in this naturally densely forested park provide challenging hilly terrain that is largely uncultivated. Visitors to this open space park caution the importance of carrying a leash with you as there are areas that are more challenging for dogs to safely navigate on their own. The area is also home to poison oak, making a leash a useful tool for keeping Fido out of "trouble."  

Lynn Rip Van Winkle Open Space is a favorite haunt of runners and walkers alike who make use of their many and varied trails. The space is near to Pebble Beach with walking trails leading directly to the well-known 17 Mile Drive.

Access to the park is free, and there are picnic tables and shaded areas provided for dogs and their owners to enjoy. It is unknown if there are any bathroom facilities nearby. Poop bags are provided in the parking lot for use by dog owners to safely remove all dog feces to help preserve the pristine conditions of this natural treasure.

This area is unfenced, so owners must use the space with their dogs off-leash at their own risk. Park officials mandate that all dogs enjoying the park off lead must be under the proper control of their owners at all times. While there are no rules requiring vaccinations or proper state licensing tags, it is recommended that your dogs have both.

This park earns high marks for its unhampered, glorious views and vigorous trails. For a great time with Fido, plan a visit to Lynn Rip Van Winkle Open Space today.
