Geology Day: Family Geology Hike

September 14, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Geology is fun! Take a hike with a geologist and discover what makes Roxborough a geologic wonder. This will take place on Fountain Valley Trail which is a 2.2- mile hike with not much of an elevation gain. Bring snacks, water, and appropriate clothing.

Afterward, learn more from the informational tables and interactive activities on the patio from our resident geologists and volunteers! BYOR (bring your own rock or fossil), we’ll help you identify it. Check out the park’s collection of rocks, minerals, and fossils. Don’t forget to check out the paleontology exhibit inside the visitor center.

All vehicles need a pass to enter the park. The daily fee is $8. Please plan on coming early on the weekends. We usually go to capacity around 9:30 a.m. and there could be up to a 45-minute wait. Please leave your pets and bike at home, they are not permitted in the park.

If you cannot make it please be considerate and cancel so that others may sign up.
