I can't believe Federal funds being wasted on this pile of dirt. No markers with any history.. just a gravel parking lot with portable rest rooms & a couple trail signs. Waste of time

My wife and I have logged hundreds of miles of great hiking in this area-treasure that previously served the military as Fort Ord.

This trail is not the most beautiful but it is always a treat to hike on these trails. I use them with hiking clubs because the trails are a bit isolated and as an older female I prefer not being out alone in what feels...More
