  • A hidden treasure in plain sight! What a joy to hike, just walk or saunter about in the beautiful coastal woods just south of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Dogs welcome, just keep them under direct control and always pick up after them. Let's be good citizens and leave the joy of nature exactly like we found it.
  • Great hiking area right off the road between Carmel and Carmel Valley. You could miss the place if you blinked while driving down the main road. No fee hiking and horseback riding area that includes a visitor center, bathrooms, and many miles of hiking trails, both flat and up the ridge. Dog owners seem to love the place, as no one seems to complain when they're running off-leash.
