Toro County Park is located six miles from downtown Salinas, and 13 miles from the Monterey Peninsula. First opened to the public in 1971, the park’s 4,756 acres have been a haven for thousands of visitors. The park is also home for many types of wildlife including deer, coyote, and a rare mountain lion or golden eagle. Toro’s pastoral setting makes it the ideal place for your next family outing. Toro County Park has much to offer the outdoor enthusiast. The park facilities include an equestrian staging area and riding trails, two softball fields, playgrounds, horseshoe pits, mountain biking, volleyball courts, and over 20 miles of hiking trials.
This particular trail does not exist at this location. All of the trails here are labeled by numbers and you can combine them as you like. The hike was nice and had a decent climb to it, but it did get confusing and rather frustrating because trails are very poorly marked. There are some makers at the trailheads, but none along the route or at crossings. definitely grab a map at the parking area before heading out and keep track.

Amazing views! Just bring lots of water and go early before the sun gets too hot.
