Join docents John Wertzler, Bruce Hartsough, and Dave Kocsis for a fun and educational hike along the San Andreas Fault. On this 2- to 3-mile stroll, you’ll stop to discuss the wonder of plate tectonics, examine remnants left by thousands of major earthquakes, and learn how to prepare for future earthquakes. The 274-acre Los Trancos Preserve is located in the Santa Cruz Mountains above Palo Alto. It’s an ideal area to learn about earthquakes: The preserve is split by the fault.
