Join Docent Naturalists Strether Smith and Nina Bell on the San Andreas Fault for an introduction to earthquake science and lore. You'll explore the fault zone and participate in a discussion of plate tectonics, fault types, local earth deformations, and the inevitable earthquake that Bay Area residents can expect "sooner than later" by geologic standards. This easy hike with minimal elevation gain is well suited for those needing a less physically challenging outing. Engaged children 8 and older are encouraged to attend.
Meet at Los Trancos Parking Area on Page Mill Road (across from Monte Bello Preserve), 7 miles west of I-280 or 1.5 miles east of Skyline Boulevard. Those traveling from I-280 on Page Mill Rd. should allow approximately 35 minutes travel time.
