FAIRFIELD — Residents can explore the rock types and sources at Rockville Trails Preserve with a docent on a free guided hike from 8:30 a.m. to noon Sept. 21.
Lorenzo Burch will guide the hike, which will explore all manner of issues concerning the rocks – including the relationship of the Cordelia Fault line at the preserve and the San Andreas Fault.
The new preserve is accessible only by docent-led hikes. Participants of all ages are welcome, but must be prepared for an intermediate to strenuous hike for 4 to 6 miles up and down rugged, steep and slippery hills. There is no water, no bathrooms and no parking lot.
Space is limited and registrants meet off-site, then car pool to the trailhead. Register online under the events calendar at www.solanolandtrust.org or by calling 745-1913.
Solano Land Trust’s Rockville Trails Preserve is located along Rockville Road, across from Rockville Hills Park. For more information, visit www.solanolandtrust.org.
