  • Loved this hike. We stayed nearby at the amazing Bernardo's Lodge and they recommended this hike...so glad they did. It has views of the Pacific from the top.  more »
  • Escaping the cool fog on the coast, we headed inland for a hike here. Beautiful place to spend some time. We walked through the grove of Eucalyptus trees and hiked down by swiftly moving Carmel River ...  more »
  • This is a jewel of the Carmel valley. We visited on a nice spring day and there were wild flowers in bloom everywhere. At the visitors center there is a 3D model of the park so you can get an idea of ...  more »

  • Incredibly beautiful. If you want a more challenging hike, take maple to sage to sky trail (make sure to grab a map from the visitors center first). You'll eventually reach the top (it's pretty strenuous) and have an absolutely gorgeous view of the mountains, the valley, and all of Monterrey bay. Definitely bring water and snacks. Estimate about 6-7 miles round trip
  • The ridge hike was awesome. Good views. Not too crowded. Well maintained. Dog friendly.
  • To the top is 1,800 feet elevation. There terrain is simple to hike but know it is for those in good shape! The legs and respiration need to be strong
  • What a beautiful park. With many many miles of trails from flat to "holy crap, that's steep", it provides some of the best coastal California flora and fauna experiences I, the area. Take a hike up to Snivley's ridge, or a cruise around the towering eucalyptus trees that line some of the trails. I am sure you wont be disappointed. You may even run into a boncat or something! I do wish there was more mountain biking access in the park. There are trails that allow bicycles, but most of them are short and flat and not ideal for most cyclists. Most want to ride for more than a mile before looping back on the start.
  • Beautiful place. Endless trails for running, hiking and horsees. Off leash dogs welcome. Just fyi, the sign posts and the trail maps are not entirely coordinated, oddly.
