“Known as "The Grind" this road takes you up from Jacks road all the way to Laguna Seca.”
— Darius Rike
Fort Ord National Monument trails (and roads) are closed from 30 minutes after sunset to 30 minutes before sunrise.
Normally ridden as a climb known as "The Grind," this road has been used as the climb back up to Laguna Seca during a lap of a 24 hour race.
The climb is fairly gradual but at nearly 3 miles long a bit of a grind. This road connects Jacks Road, Trail 49 (south), the Dam Road and Skyline Road
. The top of this road is the entrance to the Fort Ord National Monument Lands from Laguna Seca for the last several Sea Otter Classic Cross Country races.
A ride down this road gives a nice view all the way out to the Salinas Valley.
