Fort Ord Field Trip

Wednesday January 26, 10am to 2:30pm (bring lunch, water)
Leader: Andy Werner
Hike is limited to 12 people.
Sign up with Andy at:

Join Andy Werner at the Gigling Road parking area of Fort Ord for a field trip into the beautiful maritime chaparral habitat. Duration of the hike is 10-2:30, mileage is around 5-6 miles with some elevation gain, but nothing steep. The pace will be moderate with stops to look at and talk about plants. Bring lunch, water.
Due to the very confusing nature of the many unmarked and similar looking trails, if you start this hike you are going to have to do the whole hike.

Directions: Take Lightfighter exit off Hwy 1, go into Fort Ord and turn right on Gen. Jim Moore Blvd. Go a couple blocks to Gigling Rd and turn left onto Gigling. Follow Gigling past the large Department of Defense building on your right to a gated area and park in the sandy area on your right—bingo! You are there. There are no bathrooms or any facilities at all.
We will focus on the beautiful, but confusing Arctostaphylos genus, as well as the incredible diversity of Fort Ord!
