Ollason Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"The Ollason-Gilson Gap loop leads up a forested valley floor to oak-dotted grasslands covered with wildflowers. The hike re- turns on the Gilson Gap Ridge through oak groves and meadows with panoramic mountain views. This route is a less strenuous option than the hike to Ollason Peak (Hike 61 )."

"Ollason Peak is a bare, 1,800-foot knoll on the higher ridges of Toro Park. From the peak, the views extend from Salinas Valley to Monterey Bay. En route to Ollason Peak, this loop hike passes Eagle Peak and travels through a variety of landscapes, including wooded hillsides, open ridges, and grassy meadows with scat- tered oaks and wildflowers."

"Toro County Park’s almost 5000 acres includes more than 20 miles of hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails, with playgrounds and developed picnic areas for total family fun. Like most parks on the Monterey Peninsula, Toro is made up of former ranchland parcels, and many of the trails were once dirt tracks that ranchers used to run cattle, check fencelines, and patrol their land on horseback or in pick-ups. Seasonal cattle grazing, water troughs, and an old windmill are some of the remaining evidence of this park’s ranching legacy."
