UPDATE: Trail Closures in the Northern Portion of the Fort Ord National Monument as a Result of Munitions Cleanup

On June 4, the Army will begin prescribed burn site preparation for Unit A located in the northern portion of the Fort Ord National Monument. Vegetation cutting and other activities will take place in and around Unit A. These areas will be temporarily closed. Munitions cleanup in areas burned in 2017 and vegetation-cut areas will continue over the next several months. For a map showing current trail closures, Access Corridors, and other details, click here.

Access Corridors may be closed within the exclusion zones during work activities, but will remain open the rest of the time to allow for passage through the National Monument.

Work areas enclosed by temporary fence are currently closed. The exception is Trails 61/62 – these trails will be closed only during active cleanup operations (M-Th 6:30AM – 5:00PM.)

Thank you for complying with the temporary trail and road closures while the Army’s munitions cleanup is in progress. For your safety please Mind the Signs, and continue to call the Army’s information line (1-800-852-9699) with your feedback and if you have any questions.  Thank you.
