Wander through Carmel Mission's beginnings, up to Clint Eastwood's role today
This self-guided audio walking tour covers Carmel-by-the-Sea’s three mission areas: Mission Ranch, Carmel Mission Basilica, and the Mission Trail Nature Preserve.
Our tour begins and ends at the Mission Ranch Hotel, owned by actor and former mayor of Carmel, Clint Eastwood. From there, we’ll wind our way through the southern end of this charming village of Carmel-by-the-Sea to the Mission Basilica, and then on to the Mission Trail Nature Preserve. In the Preserve we will explore trails and find the trail that leads to Flanders Mansion and then head back to Mission Ranch. Along the way you will learn about early local California and Carmel history, view Carmel’s different architectural styles, from mission to modern, and hear stories about some of its interesting residents.
On this tour, you’ll hear about:
• Early Native American history
• The founders of Carmel-by-the-Sea, and its origins
• The story of how the Carmel Mission came to be
• Famous Carmel houses and hotels
• A handful of Carmel’s most interesting residents
• Mission Trail Park’s beginnings, as well as the habitats and flora found there today
This two-hour walking tour is two miles long.
