STAY INFORMED: Trail Access Status for Parker Flats on Former Fort Ord
A map entitled, “Central Happy Trails” is being circulated that may mistakenly and inappropriately give members of the public the impression that portions of Parker Flats are open for biking and hiking. This is not the case. These areas remain closed to the public pending regulatory approval and release for public access (see map HERE).
FORA is diligently working to gain regulatory approval for this area. Until then, please adhere to posted signs and stay on access corridors.
