Tomales Point Geology Hike
Sat, April 29, 2017, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM PDT
$50 Member Price / $60 Non-Member Price
Experience the rugged and isolated northern ridge crest of the park on this 10-mile hike along the Tomales Point Trail. This scenic hike is generally level, but is entirely open and often windy or foggy. Although this area is well known for its herds of Tule Elk, the open coastal grasslands along the trail provide views of the Pacific Ocean to the west and the San Andreas Fault within Tomales Bay, the Sonoma Coast, and Mount Saint Helena at the head of the Napa Valley to the east. Discussions along the trail will include: the San Andreas Fault, the 1906 earthquake, plate tectonics, Ice-Age landscapes, shoreline processes, and climate change.
