Rancho Carrillo Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Carlsbad’s Rancho Carrillo community trail circles what used to be the core of the 2538-acre Rancho de los Quiotes (Ranch of the Spanish Daggers). Stage and screen actor Leo Carrillo founded the ranch in 1937 and built most of the structures on it during the following three years. In 2003 the ranch’s 27-acre core, along with several restored early-California-style buildings, were dedicated as the Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park. As is typical of the entire north coastal region, much of the remainder of the original ranch property is being subdivided for housing."

"The Rancho Carrillo trails allow visitors to get in touch with nature not far from the sprawl of urban development. As a bonus, the loop surrounds Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park, a colorful foray into history."
