Live Oaks Ranch in the Mt. St. Helena foothills

Join geologist Glenn Melosh for an inspiring day of discovery at Live Oaks Ranch. This hike will take us into the overlying volcanic rocks at the base of Mount Saint Helena, which buried the eastern portion of the county in widespread glowing cloud ash flows about two million years ago. This hike is about 3 miles with 700' of elevation gain.

Level 4- steep inclines and off trail hiking.
