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

  • 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 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!

  • Garland Ranch is a great place to hike and enjoy the scenic Carmel Valley. Garland Ranch is not as scenic or dramatic as one of the coastal parks like Point Lobos but its definitely worth a visit and offers more challenging hiking if that is your interest. It can get fairly busy during peak times and parking is not great (small gravel lots). However there are a surprising amount of hiking trails. Also worth mentioning there weren't a ton of opportunities for wild live photography but there is a pretty wide variety of foliage. Overall a decent place to visit now and then or more if you live near by.

  • Well maintained park with good directions on trails, self borrow a trail map then return it when you're done to save the earth, horses and dogs 💩 pooped on trails so watch out for those. If you want challenging course, take up Sniverly trail otherwise stay on Mesa, Sage to take you to Sky. When you get to the top, do NOT take Sniverly's Ridge trail heading south Carmel Valley Rd , will end up in Carmel Valley Ranch golf course, then you have to walk another 3 miles on dangerous curvy Carmel Valley Rd back to Garland. Take either Sky or Garza Canyon via Sniverly's north/east side. I went early 6AM, got to near end of Sniverly trail around 7:30AM, above the fog line, picture looks like heaven however I'm not ready to go there yet, give me another 30 years.
