Hike Request

NOTE: Now more than ever, Big Sur Land Trust understands the public’s need to enjoy the benefits of nature during Monterey County’s shelter-in-place and the COVID19 situation. Whenever you head to our properties or any outdoor area be sure to practice social distancing so we can all do our part to “flatten the curve”! This means maintaining a physical distance of 6 feet or more while walking, hiking or running, bringing along soap or hand sanitizer in case you touch surfaces, covering your mouth with a tissue or your elbow when coughing or sneezing, and most importantly, staying at home if you are sick.

As part of our safety plan, we are limiting the number of hikers per day – if a site is already at capacity, we will offer you alternative dates. With the increase in demand, please provide 48 hours’ notice (Monday-Friday) so we can confirm your request and accommodate everyone.

Supporters of Big Sur Land Trust may hike dawn to dusk at Mitteldorf Preserve in Carmel Valley, Patriarch Ridge in Carmel Valley, Glen Deven Ranch in Big Sur and Marks Ranch in Salinas by reservation only.

When your Hike Request is received, we'll contact you to confirm your reservation and send you a liability waiver. After we receive your signed waiver(s) we will send you maps, gate codes, etc. for your hike. Please call (831) 625-5523 option 3 with questions or to reserve a hike by phone.
