To those with Knowledge Of Ord,
The last time I rode the fun little trails in the northwest reaches of Fort Ord, and the trails in the "middle section" of Fort Ord (ie: Trails 49, 50, 60, 71, 22, and Trails 80-85), it was a few years ago and there were two main parking options that I knew of:
8th & Gigling and the decrepit East Garrison (off of Inter Garrison Rd and Reservation Rd).
Clearly the East Garrison is barred to us now. The hand of Progress has in recent years closed off quite a bit of road access around the perimeter, it seems.
Is the traditional 8th and Gigling intersection itself still the best place to park on the Northwest side of Ord? Are there other good spots to park to access these trails in the Northwest section of Ord, and in the "middle section" as I imperfectly described above?
For example, can one still park at Schoonover Rd and Inter-Garrison? Does anyone park there or is 8th & Gigling just better anyway? ........Or somewhere in that whole general area? Sorry for my ignorance but there are more closed roads now than open roads around there , so I gave up and parked at Creekside.
Creekside is a clear place to park, of course, and I know you can access the "middle section" of Ord by riding some distance from Creekside (and even 59 Blair Witch and environs are "accessible" but quite far from Creekside.)
I'm specifically wanting to know about Good/Recommended parking options between the 8th & Gigling intersection and the old East Garrison, if there are any. (The official Trail Map of course doesn't have any "P" Parking symbols anywhere at all besides at Creekside, Laguna Seca, and Toro Creek Rd/Hwy 68.)
I assume that the answer is going to be "just park at 8th & Gigling.", but it would be nice to know if there are other options.
Thanks all. 411 much appreciated.
