“A gradual climb up and a good way to avoid most of the climb up Sandy Ridge Road.
— Darius Rike
Fort Ord National Monument trails are closed from 30 minutes after sunset to 30 minutes before sunrise.
After initially starting to climb up Sandy Ridge Road
, you'll see Trail 25 off to your right.
It starts out with some nice flowing grade reversals and then goes through a sandy turn and starts up the ridge. There are a couple of steeper sections but the climb is fairly gradual until it flattens out and then connects back to Sandy Ridge Road
. Most rides will continue on the road to the right.
Riding down this trail can be fun to but watch for uphill traffic.
