Anu S. wrote in to tell us about her wonderful experience with her dogs at Rip Van Winkle Open Space, a small open space dog area bordering Pebble Beach in Monterey County:
"Rip Van Winkle Open space in Pebble Beach was one of the coolest places we have taken our dogs. It is a tiny little place, but completely leash free and full of trails. Our dogs were ecstatic and we met lovely people. I've never seen happier dogs. I love Rip Van Winkle Open Space almost as much as Carmel Beach, but it was nice not having to clean them up after the beach."
