  • The Los Trancos Open Space Preserve is split in half by the San Andreas Fault and therefore makes it ideal to learn about earthquake terminology. The Earthquake trail is a 1.5 mile long hike. A self-guided earthquake tour is available on their website. We went in December and the roads were icy. Parking is also limited.
  • Beautiful space to walk. Never crowded. About 400 foot elevation change is max throughout the park. You can do about 5 miles in this park and basically cover it all. Parking is free, nearby, and ample.
