Self Guided Tour at Earthquake Fault

Do you have Interpretive Experiences you'd like to share? Find out How!

  • The self-guided tour of the Earthquake Fault is a great family-friendly stroll through a quiet forest of old-growth Jeffrey pine and Red Fir, affording a fascinating glimpse at the recent geological history of the region. From the parking area off Hwy 203, a partially paved path leads downhill to an interpretive kiosk. Farther on, you come to a set of stairs leading into a dark pit of fractured basalt. Continue to the opposite side, where you can walk the length of the fault to another crossing 200 yards north. There are picnic tables near the parking area where you can rest and enjoy a picnic in the shady woods.
