Event Details

Discover the diversity of Point Reyes geology by taking short hikes at three classic locations. Our first hike will be to the Point Reyes Lighthouse with beautiful views of the rugged coast and special exposures of a volcanic and granitic conglomerate, which is correlated with similar rocks at Point Lobos State Reserve south of Carmel. At Drakes Beach, we will walk alongside the gentle waves to observe sedimentary rocks exposed in the bluffs and learn about shoreline processes. In addition, we will stop at the Kenneth C. Patrick Visitor Center to look at marine fossils, including a whale skeleton excavated near Bolinas. Our last hike will be to Kehoe Beach to examine granitic rocks with quartz veins, a major fault, folded sedimentary rocks, and a dynamic dune and shoreline setting.
