Garland Ranch Regional Park - Review
With such an incredible tale of history attached to, the Garland Ranch Regional Park is a must-visit while in Carmel Valley. Whether you love history or not, this park can be visited for myriad purposes. Hiking is one of the most commonly undertaken activities here. The hike is especially famous for its rewarding views of the colossal Pacific Ocean. The terrain is a diverse mix of altitudes ranging from 200 feet to 2000 feet in a lush vegetation. Make your way through dense oak woodlands, thick stands of chaparral and maple-filled canyon. A great place to bring the kids to, owing to a wide variety of insects found here; of course, for educational purposes. Horseback riding is another popular activity here.

Garland Ranch Regional Park, Carmel Valley Reviews
From the point of view of an ecologist, this phenomenal park has a tremendous diversity of habitats. Most of the trails are very steep. If you are a potential visitor, you may want to be aware that a number of summer footbridges are removed in the fall to keep them from washing away in the boulder-rounding winter streamflows. There are signs posted at trailheads.
Beautiful outdoors recreation area. It was my first time but this place appears to have trails ranging in intensity from flat to maybe level 3 (out of 10). Hikers looking for a good workout can find some spots along the trails that should meet their needs.
Expansive regional park with opportunities for all kinds of nature lovers. Paths vary from short, flat loops that are broad enough for groups and dogs to really challenging inclines that offer an intense workout as well as amazing views of the surrounding valleys. Plenty of parking and a central visitor station with maps, water, and restrooms.
This place has snakes and tarantulas but it is a forest so it's normal.There are many trails very sunny but it's a good place to exercise. Ps.when coming down don't run. I know someone who got hurt going down.
This is by far my favorite park near Monterey to date. I've heard there are over 50 miles of trails and I can't wait to hike all of them. Me and my wife did about 6. The trails are incredibly well maintained, the forest is beautiful, and the scenes from the vantage points are amazing. For a family outing or day hike its going to be hard to find a better place. The trails aren't too steep either so little ones should be able to keep up depending on which trails you choose, just be sure to examine the tail maps when you get there. Can't wait to go back!
