Explore Limestone Canyon: Geology of the Canyon

Join us on a moderate-paced hike through the beautiful Limestone Canyon Nature Preserve. This month we will have a guided, geology based, hike that is a 9-mile distance, and 800′ elevation gain. Chat with your naturalist as you learn about the formation of The Sinks, an iconic geological formation often compared to a mini-Grand Canyon for Orange County as well as other geologic features of the canyon.

All participants must carry their own water! Please come prepared with a sturdy day pack (please see Trail Tips), plenty of water (recommended 70 oz), snacks, sturdy closed-toe hiking shoes or boots, sunscreen, first aid, and all other supplies to keep you safe and healthy on the trail.

After our trek, you are welcome to enjoy the trails during Wilderness Access Day: Limestone Canyon.

Review the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this level-4 activity on the land.
