Route Description for Earthquake Fault Trail
While the Earthquake Fault Trail is not considered to be a difficult route, it is important that you are mindful when traversing around the deep fault line cravases. As some of the fault lines run rather deep into the earth, an untimely fall here could result in injury, and so you should ensure that you are careful with your footing and that you keep an eye on young children.
With your vehicle parked, make your way to the Earthquake Fault Overlook Trail. Follow the trail as it makes its way north, where you will soon arrive at the route's namesake - the Earthquake Fault lines themselves. Take some time to carefully explore the imposing craveses before backtracking your steps towards the trailhead. If interested, you can also extend the route slightly by following the Earthquake Fault Trail as it makes its way south to a scenic vista.
