Quick Description: If you could identify a main entrance to the Fort Ord Public Lands, Creekside Terrace Trailhead would probably be it. It is certainly the most developed of the official entrances to the backcountry, offering ample parking and restroom facilities.

Long Description:

Fort Ord Public Land

The Fort Ord Public Land is administered by the BLM.  The BLM has done an outstanding job of developing the area for multiple uses.  One of the biggest draws to the area is the mountain biking.  Every class of trail can be encountered on the numerous single track and single lane fire road trails in the old Fort Ord backcountry.

Private vehicles are banned, except by permit, from most of the roads administered by the BLM, making for some excellent riding on asphalt.  If you feel more adventurous, there are plenty of well marked trails to choose from.  Please stay on marked trails only.  There are numerous bandit trails and the BLM would appreciate everyone's help in minimizing the impact in the area.  Also, please do not drive around any "Road Closed" barricades.  The coordinates for the various parking areas that I've submitted are where you should park.

 

There are a few bulletin boards scattered throughout the area and one at the Portola Road parking area that sporadically has the much coveted trail maps.  However, it's much easier to just download a map from boulter's ExpertGPS calibrated maps.  You don't need ExpertGPS just to print the jpeg map out, but it may be worth you while to purchase it if you intend to hunt for some caches in the area.  It makes locating the nearest trails much easier.
