Geology hike planned April 19 at Rockville Hills Preserve

By From page A4 | April 05, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Rocks are the focus of an April 19 hike at Rockville Trails Preserve.

The docent leading the hike will talk about what’s beneath the ground at the preserve and share information about the nearest volcano. Hikers may also see a portion of the Cordelia fault line that lies in the preserve.

Rockville Trails Preserve is only accessible by docent-led hikes. The entry and exit gate will be locked except for the start and end time. There is no water, restroom facilities or parking lot at the preserve.

Hikers will carpool after meeting just before 9 a.m. at the “Ice House” building near the intersection of Suisun Valley and Rockville roads in Fairfield.

Hikers are encouraged to bring a backpack with water and lunch. Hiking boots or sturdy closed-toe shoes are encouraged as well as long pants and layered clothing.

The 4-mile hike should last about 4 hours.

Space is limited. Advance registration is required by calling 330-7263 or by visiting www.solanolandtrust.org.
