Manzanita County Park is a 3 mile loop trail located near Salinas, CA and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
The trails are ok, they are well maintained. My only problem with this site is its security. The gates are not open so cars are parked at the bottom of the hill. Unfortunately, my wallet my was stolen with 35 minutes. The mounts county sheriff states the have cars broken into 3-4 times a week. So go at your own risk.
