“The Badger Hills trailhead was made possible through the cooperation of local, state and federal agencies,” said Eric Morgan, Fort Ord National Monument manager. “Highway improvement and trailhead construction used pooled funding through BLM, the Federal Highway Administration and the California Department of Transportation. This partnership, supported by Monterey County, provides safer and more convenient access to BLM’s newest national monument.
