Directions to Marina Equestrian Center Park
The Sgt Allan MacDonald Cavalry Trail
The Sgt Allan MacDonald Cavalry Trail takes horse riders and hikers from the Marina Equestrian Center Park to Comanche's Grave* in Fort Ord National Monument. This gently rolling 6.5 mile roundtrip feels like wilderness nearly all the way.
The Fort Ord Warhorse Cycling Tour
Here's Friends of the Fort Ord Warhorse's nifty 11-mile bike ride we lead for Fort Ord Warhorse Day and Veterans Day Celebration. The route takes you from the historic Marina Equestrian Center Park to Comanche's Grave* and the cavalry watering troughs in Fort Ord National Monument. It continues through Cal State Monterey Bay to Fort Ord Dunes State Park and the overlook of the Pacific Ocean at the site of Stilwell Hall. Follow at your own risk and have fun. The images below are pages one and two of the route slip.
*Comanche was the last ceremonial warhorse of Fort Ord and belonged to Sgt Allan MacDonald—one of the last living horse cavalrymen and a friend of the Fort Ord warhorse.
