Staying in the valley and were recommended this park to go hiking. There's a nice mix of well marked trails (map for $1 at the Visitor centre), through meadows, to waterfalls, some fairly steep trails through beautiful forest, etc. However, these are well marked, organised...More
The trails in Garland Park, easy or challenging, are kept in great condition. You can start with a flat mile or two mile stroll around the two bottom loops, and work your way up to moderate uphills along the mid-range trails, all connecting back to...More
Came here with my family to wine taste but the young adults wanted to get some hiking in. This apparently local place is really wonderful. We hiked about 2 hours. We followed the waterfall trail up to the waterfall which DID have some water and...More

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.
