“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.
