Astride the Sleeping Giant

March 8, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Sunday, March 8 2:00pm to 5:00pm
Approximate Total Miles: 2

Docents Dave and Judy Boore and the San Andreas Fault will be your guides for an afternoon exploring the causes and consequences of earthquakes occurring “in your backyard”. Dave is an emeritus seismologist at the U.S. Geological Survey. You’ll visit two Preserves, stop for engaging discussion (sometimes extended– depending on weather and interest), and hike at a moderate pace between stops. This minimal elevation change outing is well suited for those needing a less physically challenging hike, and is intended for interested teenagers as well as adults. Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after February 23.

Where to Meet: Meet at the Preserve parking lot 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.
