Join Geo-Ventures for a moderate hike with a couple of short, steep and strenuous sections on unstable slopes including a 20-minutes quarry walk of severely faulted rocks with slickensides. Meet at end of McKelligon Canyon Road loop (at the highest point). $5 Park fees. Wear appropriate hiking clothes and shoes and bring plenty of water.

This event has been cancelled due to sustained 30 mph winds with 50+ mph gusts, which can be amplified on the eastern slopes and in the canyon.

Later Event: April 6
