Carmel River Trail along Los Padres Reservoir Professional Review and Guide
"The Los Padres Reservoir is an 1 ,800-acre dammed lake along the Carmel River. The reservoir, nestled in a gorgeous valley surrounded by the forested mountains, lies adjacent to the Los Padres National Forest. The forested path contours the mountains along the western slope of the long reservoir from one end to the other, gaining little elevation. Be aware of ticks, which are prevalent along the trail during the winter season."
