Geology Hike- Moulton Peak

February 25 @ 9:00 am — 12:00 pm

Join on a 4-mile geology hike  (600 ft. elevation gain) over level to steep terrain.  Hike through the oak-filled woodland  of Wood Canyon and then ascend to the park’s highest peak.  We’ll be hiking up a great stack of  layered rock (Formations) , each being several  hundred feet in thickness.  Each Formation tells a different  story, stories of ancient times,  from great deposits of sand, origin of caves,  a time of submarine  landslides, and a time when  a great shell-filled limestone reef formed.  This is an intermediate-level hike.
