Fort Ord National Monument trails (and roads) are closed from 30 minutes after sunset to 30 minutes before sunrise.
This road starts at Laguna Seca at the same place as Pilarcitos Canyon Road and takes you down from Laguna Seca to Jacks Road and the Public Lands Day area (Look for an area with a bathroom, covered tables and a Fort Ord National Monument Sign).
The Public Lands Day Area was used back in the Army training days as a bivouac area where soldiers ate their meals and cleaned their weapons on these tables. The overhead cover helped shelter them from the sun and rain.
Along the way you'll pass the top of trail 47, Quidato Road, Oil Well Road, Trail 44, the bottom of trail 43 and trail 42. This road follows a ridge at the top so enjoy the view.
