Garland Ranch Regional Park and Trail

Garland Ranch Regional Park and Trail

Located 8.6 miles east of Highway 1 on Carmel Valley Road, Garland Ranch Regional Park is 4,462 acres in size with many trails. Some of the trails traverse through private property, for this reason visitors are asked to respect the rule for staying on the trails. This park is one of the few parks in Monterey County that has preserved Rumsien Indian habitation sites and remains of the Rancho Don Juan.

There is a visitor center and rangers available for any questions you may have. A docent program provides outdoor interpretive hikes for all ages. A full range of day use activities includes hiking, limited mountain bike riding, horseback riding, walking, jogging, seasonal fishing and more. There are no overnight camping facilities at this park.

As in all Monterey County parks, dogs are allowed to be off-leash as long as they are under voice control, so they are free to swim in the Carmel River, which runs along the edge of the park. In the summer make sure you watch for signs warning dogs from swimming during a toxic algae bloom. Blue-green algae can cause skin and eye irritation and can be deadly if ingested.
