BLM AREA B (Northern Portion of the Fort Ord National Monument)

The map below shows current trail closures as well as Access Corridors.

Starting June 18th, the Army will be conducting vegetation cutting in support of the 2018 Fort Ord prescribed burns. The work will affect both sides of Gigling Rd. (between 8th Ave. and Watkins Gate Rd.), 8th Avenue Extension (between Gigling Rd. and Parker Flats Rd.), and Parker Flats Rd. (between 8th Ave. and Watkins Gate Rd.). These areas will be temporarily closed. Munitions cleanup in areas burned in 2017 and vegetation-cut areas will continue over the next several months.

 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.
