Garland uses both the land Garland donated plus hiking easements from other landowners.
We should have had more than sneakers as some of the trails are so dusty they are slippery.
Even though bikes are allowed we did not have them zooming around. Mostly couples...More
We take our two black Labs to Garland almost every day. Some days we walk a long flat loop, other days we take a moderate to strenuous hike up the hill. We vary our outings between the main park on CV road and the section...More
I run and hike in Garland on a regular basis. The trails are well kept and range from easy to challenging. It's one of my favorite places, especially when the river is running strong, as it is now. It's a great place to take a...More
During the summer my dog and I hike here several times per week. The valley floor has 2 flat loops, Lupine and Rancho, and the hill behind is crisscrossed by many trials going up to Snively's Ridge at 1,800 feet. The trails are well-marked and...More
Lovely place to stop have a small (or long) hike. Easy to navigate, babbling brook, ok to bring the kids, dogs, and horses. Not overcrowded or touristy. Just a nice peaceful place to enjoy the outdoors.
Get maps at the visitor center (free to loan; or keep for $1 donation). Several trails, all well signed, some are fairly flat and wide, and several head up into the hills. waterfall trail was a little incline, but easy to navigate on a well...More
We had a nice 4.5-mile hike which included open meadows, shaded groves of trees, and openings onto vista views. There are so many different options of hiking to choose from that any age will enjoy. It must be spectacular to ride horses on the trails....More
This is a lovely area, Carmel river runs thru it, large groves of oak and sycamore trees. Good place for spotting wildlife. Interesting visitor center. I always take out of town guests here and they love it. Good spot to get out of the fog...More

Access is limited to daylight hours from sunrise to sunset. No overnight use or camping is permitted. Almost all of the park is now open. There are a couple of areas still closed due to the fire, but they are quite a ways from the main entrance. N permits are required.

No permit for access to most of the park (parking on CVR, you have access to visitor center, bathrooms and many miles of easy to very challenging trails). Last I knew, a permit is required access to backlands, outer reaches of the park accessible over steep terrain or more miles - but like six or seven. Lovely country.

You need to trailer in your own horses and use the trails at Garland Park. Trail rides to the public are offered at Pebble Beach Equestrian Center and Andrew Molera State Park (near Big Sur.) Trail rides are walking only.
