The Fort Ord Rec Trail and Greenway (FORTAG) is proposed as
a 30-mile regional network of paved recreational trails and greenways connecting communities to open space.

FORTAG will facilitate active transportation - expanding our region's opportunities for traveling between home, work, and commercial areas
by foot, bike, or wheelchair.
