Garland Ranch Regional Park is a gorgeous park with the Carmel River running through it. Dogs are allowed off-leash in certain areas, including in the river and on selected trails (not the horse trails). Atop the northern crest of the Santa Lucia Mountains, the trails encounter open oak savannas and spectacular vistas. Along the way, you will travel through maple-filled canyons, dense oak woodlands, and thick stands of chaparral.

    Must Take Your Dog Here!

    So many different trails! The many options make sure that none of them are too crowded. Met some nice pups and saw really nice scenery.

    Great for dogs

    The park is beautiful and very well mantained. Dogs are allowed off leash through out the park. Everyone I met was friendly and happy to pet my dog. The visitor center has loner maps for you can buy on for a few bucks. The only minor downside is the traffic sounds. You can hear cars and road sounds well back into the park.
