  • We stopped here after leaving Marina, CA on the way home to see what this National Monument was like. In Marina, we went to Fort Ord State Beach park and there you can see old buildings in the area...

  • Nice place for a stroll, does have quite an incline for those with limited stamina. Saw a few bikes, dog 🐶 walking (on and off leash), joggers, patches of wildflowers, and some horse riding (see videos). Very limited parking though.
  • Great safe, and less trafficked location. Trash cans and restrooms at the main entrance. A path for horses and a separate for bikes/hikers. Get here early around 8am and you'll have it all to yourself. Dog friendly but must be on leash. Lots of dog poop though so watch out. We occasionally see rabbits but no other wildlife thus far.
