FAIRFIELD — Various rock types and their sources will be the focus of a docent-led hike from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 19 at Rockville Trails Preserve.
The hike will explore how the rocks got there, what is underground at the preserve, the rocks’ relationship to the nearby Green Valley and San Andreas faults, and more. Hikers will also look for the effects of landslides and erosion, according to a press release from the Solano Land Trust.
Rockville Trails Preserve is along Rockville Road, across from Rockville Hills Regional Park. It is operated by the Solano Land Trust. There is no drinking water, no bathrooms or parking lots. Dogs are not permitted.
Meet your guide before 9 a.m. at the big red Ice House building on Suisun Valley Court, near the intersection of Rockville and Suisun Valley roads. Bring a backpack with plenty of water and a lunch.
Space for the hike is limited and advance registration is required. For more information, call 330-7263.
