San Andreas Fault Trail

Obtain a map or guide for this hike at the sign at the East end of the parking lot, so you can go on a self-guided seismic tour! Begin at the trailhead at the West end of the parking lot. Walk uphill to the windy, grassy ridges of the area. Stop at each marked post along the way and read about its significance. Walk downhill and cross the Franciscan Loop Trail, continuing along the San Andreas Fault Trail. Turn left at a 3-way junction to continue along the San Andreas Fault Trail. Turn left past post #5 to loop around the fault break, returning eventually to post #5. Retrace your steps to return to the parking lot.
