CANCELED: Mt. Tam West Peak Hike - Geology of West Peak: Led by Vic Claassen

Join local geologists and engineers to learn more about the geology of West Peak, and how this informs restoration alternatives. As we hike, we will discuss other local projects that feature large-scale restoration efforts and how their unique geology informed both topographic and plant community restoration.

Meeting location: The Mountain Theater overflow parking lot (also known as the quarry parking lot) is located just past the Mountain Theater entrance. If you are unfamiliar with the location, this google map marks the location of the Mountain Theater (marked as the "Cushing Memorial Amphitheater" on the map), and you will see just north of it, the parking lot marked as "Quarry Parking Lot". To get there, drive up Pan Toll Road, make a right on Ridgecrest Blvd, pass the Mountain Theater Fire Road and Rock Spring Trail (entrance to the Mountain Theater), and look for a dirt parking lot on your right where we are meeting.
