Do you think about what’s on your plate? Southern California rests on the Pacific Plate and the Santa Monica Mountains are a result of the Earth’s continuous shifting. These mountains have a fascinating origin story that shape how we live our lives today. Enjoy a hike with a park ranger and discover how plates move, mountains lift, get squeezed, and wither away to create the beautiful place we call Southern California.
Meet at the upper Solstice Canyon parking lot for this moderate 2 mile guided hike. Hike begins at 8:30 AM. Please arrive 15-30 mins early just in case the parking is full and you need to walk to the meeting location.
Please bring water, sunscreen, a hat, sturdy shoes, and appropriate clothing for the weather.
