    Just hiked here last Sunday for the first time on a day of perfectly sunny, not-too-hot weather. One of the oldest, tallest groves of eucalyptus trees anywhere towers over you as you wind your way across river, into wide open spaces and cool, shady forests, all lying at the foot of golden brown, rolling hills. Part of what makes this place Paradise, imo.

    My wife and I love this place. we take our dog and we let her run free. If you go during summer time, don't go between 10 and noon because aside from the heat, the mosquitoes are pretty active. also, there are a lot little warms-moths hanging from the trees. all these things are expected on such a pristine place.

    This place is so peaceful, even when there seems to be lots of people. So far all the visitors seem respectful. It can get really hot at midday, so if you are bringing your dog, you'll probably want to come in the morning. Or you can have them take a plunge in the river if it's hot. Like many places near Carmel, the park is leash free, but we always keep a leash on our dog as there are often horses on the trails. Watch out for poison oak!
