Next Saturday, 8 September, I’ll be leading a short, rugged urban walk for Oakland Urban Paths that among other things will visit these faceted spurs along the Hayward fault. Seen from the north . . .
and from the south:
The downhill side is moving north with respect to the near side. The open land in the foreground is the King Estates Open Space.
This will not be a stairway walk. The off-street passages are steep, weedy dirt paths that have not been maintained. The land along the fault is steep, making for nice residential view lots. I haven’t finished the route yet but it will take no more than 90 minutes, 10 to 11:30—I have a lunch destination I’m anxious to make. So I would like to set a good geologist’s pace. Details and questions as they come to you over at Oakland Urban Paths.
