Nice trail to ease your friends into hiking.

Moderately challenging. There IS poison sumac on this trail. I'm 99% certain I got it on my face from a spiderweb across the trail. I am going on week 3.5 and it's nearly gone. I hadn't been outside but to go on this trail, and I was walking this daily as my morning hike. It doesn't appear to be well maintained, like many trails in Monterey County. It's difficult to avoid brushing up against plants. I much prefer hikes in places where you can tell they support the outdoors folk, by maintaining the trails.

Decent trail. 3 miles of it is nice paved road that could fit two cars. Other 2 miles is 1-person dirt path through the trees. Only saw two people so I was able to have my dog walk off leash most of the time. Not really much of a view but has lots of open space for the sun to shine through. Sadly it rained on us 2.5 miles in so lots a mud on the trails. Will probably do this one again because there was almost no one on the trails and has a lot of connecting trails on it.

Beautiful trail with beautiful views. A little too high-traffic for me. Lots of people walking on Monday morning. We brought our dog which is allowed to walk off leash but there are lots of bikers so we really had to keep her on the leash the whole time.

Took my pittie "Candy-Cane" and did a great loop. Easy, peaceful, serene. I love this place.

The trails at the Fort Ord National Monument are multi use. Equestrian, non motorized bicycle, and foot travel. The trailheads are easy to find and the skill level is mostly easy to moderate hiking with an occasional sections being a little more challenging. Google the monument and find info on trail maps, history, flora/fauna, etc. I find the trails to be in fair condition considering the multi uses. There are sections a bit more worn so be prepared for berms, holes, ruts, etc. The trails all seem to tie together in some form so don't worry about getting lost. Carry water and a hat on warmer days, a light jacket and maybe layering on cooler days. Be careful wearing personal listening devices as bicyclists are about, mostly on downhill sections. Please be courteous to all users.

There are MILES of trails on FT Ord. Mostly well travelled, mostly for Mountain Biking. Beautiful terrain, great scenery. Not a lot of services. If you need it, pack it...if you use it, take it out with you. The Monterey Off-road Cycling Association (MORCAmtb.org) has some good maps and information about the trails. They are also pretty active in builing and maintaining the trails.
