MARINA, Calif. (KION-TV)- The U.S. Bureau of Land Management are warning visitors to stay on the trail when they visit Fort Ord National Monument.

U.S. Army discovered trails and jumps being built west of Barloy Canyon Road.

The U.S. Army wants to remind visitors to stay out of the closed areas.

Army officials said that the hazardous military munition may still be in those areas.

"Unauthorized trail building and use of unsigned paths at the Fort Ord National Monument is dangerous,” Fort Ord National Monument Manager Eric Morgan said “Creating illegal routes exposes visitors to unexploded ordnance hazards, destroys endangered plants and wildlife habitat, and is costly to remedy.”

The U.S. Army said that violations of property rules and restrictions are subject to penalties.
