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.
