Community Hike at Palo Corona Regional Park
February 23, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Join our Monterey Bay Moves tribe for a hike at Palo Corona Regional Park, Carmel Valley
Palo Corona Regional Park is one of Central Coast California’s most significant undeveloped open spaces. In the largest land conservation project in Monterey county history, The Nature Conservancy, The Big Sur Land Trust, State of California (through several of its agencies), and Monterey Peninsula Regional Park District partnered to acquire the 10,000-acre Palo Corona Ranch.
The road leading up the mountain toward Inspiration Point is a moderate to strenuous hike. The trailhead takes you through a flat bed of non-native European grasses. The Coast Live Oak trees provide cool shade as the trail begins to get steeper. Approximately ¾ of the way, there are gorgeous views of the Carmel coast and it is a great place to take a break. Just around the corner from here is the mountaintop where hikers will be relieved from the uphill climb. To the right of the trail is a picnic bench that sits on the edge of Inspiration Point where hikers will get the bird’s eye view of Carmel and the coast nearby.
Co-led by Coach Elizabeth and avid local hiker Haven Brearton, this hike will take between 2-3 hours.
Along the way, we will take short breaks to engage with our mind, bodies and the surrounding nature with a short mindfulness meditation practice at the top of Inspiration Point.
