Fort Ord Dunes State Park – Monterey County, CA

Fort Ord Dunes State ParkFort Ord Dunes State Park is a 979-acre state park on Monterey Bay, in Monterey County, California, in the United States. The state park includes a boardwalk, a path to the beach, a four-mile road for walking and biking, and interpretive exhibits describing its former use as a military training area. As the dunes are a nesting area for sensitive species, public access is limited to the paths and trails.

This recently opened Fort Ord Dunes State Park has a 1,500 foot trail to 4 miles of ocean beach with beautiful views of Monterey Bay.  From the parking area visitors may also take a stroll on the new boardwalk to a bluff top viewing platform.  Eight educational panels have been installed that will inform the public about the natural and cultural history of the park.  Existing park roads are open to bicyclists, hikers and dogs on leash. To protect park resources public access is limited to designated roads and trails.  Dogs must be on leash and remain on paved roads.  Horses and campfires are not allowed on the beach.
