Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Palo Corona Regional Park sits at the northwest corner of the Santa Lucia Range, south of Carmel and above Monastery Beach and Point Lobos State Park. The 1 0,000-acre Palo Corona Ranch, stretching over 7 miles in length, was acquired by a collaboration between public agencies and conservation groups in 2004. The sprawling open-space park contains the headwaters to thirteen watersheds. It is a crucial wildlife corridor, protecting a diverse and endangered plant and animal species. The park’s significant wildlife habitats include streamside riparian forests, redwood and madrone forests, coast live oak woodlands, a coastal terrace prairie, grasslands, native buckwheat, and vernal wetlands."
