This is a connector trail between the north section of Fort Ord National Monument and the south. This trail is a great downhill - it's fun and flowing but watch for uphill traffic. It starts in the Manzanita off Barloy Canyon Road and transitions to Oak as you get further down the hill. There are a couple of sandy turns so watch your line.

Access Info

Access via Barloy Canyon Rd heading South OR Eucalyptus Rd heading North.

      some significant ruts that need maintenance, some sandy patches especially toward the bottom, overall still fun in both directions

      reporter Trail is generally in good shape but does need some of the drains cleared.

       Super fun. Fast n flowy with nice turns. Take caution on blind turns when going downhill to riders coming up. You can carry serious speed on the straight, wooded section. Another fav of mine.
