Description: 
Join 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 change is well suited for those needing a less physically challenging outing. Engaged children 8 years and older are encouraged to attend.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.
