Guidotti Loop - Ft. Ord National Monument Approx. 6 Miles

Let's do this no wait hike to stay in shape. The trail is 940 feet up and about 6 miles long. We start at 6:00 PM. We prefer that this not be your first time on this loop since the last mile of the hike may be in the dark. 

Route: We start at the Fort Ord National Monument parking lot. We climb Guidotti Road to Skyline. Turn right. Proceed on Skyline 2 miles or so to Toro Creek Road. Hike 2 miles back to the parking lot.

Rain will cancel. Bring lights. Some of the trek may be in the dark.

Driving Directions:  The trail-head is on Highway 68 about a mile south of Reservation Road and a half mile north of San Binancio and across the highway from Toro Cafe. (See our map). You can see a parking area and restrooms from the highway. There is a sign denoting Fort Ord National Monument which you can see as you turn into the entrance road, but cannot see approaching it.

Restrooms on site in parking area.
