Hike the beach and back trails from Point Woronzof to Earthquake Park

Let's hike the beach at low tide from Point Woronzof to the Postmark Drive parking lot, and then hike deep into the interior of Earthquake Park on the unpaved scenic footpaths. Along the way we'll look for geological clues and discuss the dynamics that created this rugged landscape in 1964. Plan to be out 3 to 3.5 hours, and return to Point Woronzof via the paved Coastal Trail. Sorry, no dogs on this one!

BRING: Be prepared for a bit of mud, water, and rough terrain. The migrating fall waterfowl are colorful, so you might want binoculars. Bring your lunch and we'll find a scenic spot to eat.

LOCATION: Point Woronzof Parking lot at the far west at of Northern Lights Boulevard. Park on the east side of the parking lot overlooking the small pond. I'll have a green Subaru Outback.

DOGS: No.

      Hey, it was an enjoyable hike. The interaction of water, soil and vegetation along this stretch of beach provides interesting natural features to observe. And I found an agate!

    Low tide is 4.67 feet at 10:05 AM, which gives us plenty of room to get past the fallen trees on the beach. The beach is composed of pebbles where we start, but gradually turns quite sandy as you can see from the above photo. There are scattered lumps of coal on the beach, which are eroding out of the bluff. Earthquake Park is still wet and muddy after all the recent rains, so I'll try to adjust our route to can avoid the worst of it.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
