Geology Hike- Willow (Laurel Loop)

Join us for a look into the park’s landscapes during the past 25 million years.  We will see evidence of ancient  volcanic activity, shifting sea floor sands, clam fossils telling us of a shallow bay, ancient faults and earthquakes, recent landslides, and formation of our sandstone caves.
