Need to Know

Watch out for off-trail poison oak/ivy. It sometimes hangs near the track -- wash exposed skin and clothing after using this trail.

Runner Notes

The northern end of this trail has somewhat technical footing due to a steep grade and erosion.

Description

Starting from Monterey County Trail 90, parallel to Gigling Road (sometimes labeled as Watkins Gate Road), this hard-packed singletrack winds through oak forest north, crossing several other trails, and ends at a somewhat washed-out 13% grade down to a powerline access road. The trail itself is short, but of good quality, and links up with several other trails in the Fort Ord system.

Flora & Fauna

Oak, local flowers, poison oak/ivy.
