San Andreas Fault

by GUYON

I will leave France to California within 5 days. I have received a lot of relevant advices and informations from VT members I want to thank in this message.
Nethertheless, it remains a question without answer :

where can we have the best view on the San Andreas fault ?

If I have this response it would be perfect.

Thanks
RAY

Around San Francisco: There's an Earthquake Exhibition Trail in Marin County, close to Point Reyes (try for "Earthquake Trail Marin County" in Google) -- including a barn that was set apart by the 1906 quake. Not far away is Muir Woods, a valley with giant redwood trees. I'd definitely opt for a daytrip to Marin County!

Also, a strand of the San Andreas fault runs right through Berkeley, watch for offset curbs, most famous off-set is the Berkely Uni Football stadium!

Parkfield in Mid-CA

Southern California:
Very good spot: Key's view in Joshua Tree National Park -- Giampieiro has a VT-Page -- looking down into Coachella Valley all the hills and mountains follow strands of the San Andreas fault

If you want to see the fault then start in Los Angeles and drive the Lancaster, Pearblossom, Cherry Vally rout to the high deasert. (Victiervile) You will be driving right beside it for about 30 miles. It is easy to spot, it looks like an earthquake that is riseing on one side and sinking on the other. Max

The spot the poster before me referred to in Lancaster, CA actually occurs in Palmdale, CA. When departing north from Los Angeles, take the 5 freeway north to highway 14 North. On highway 14 north, drive until you pass Acton, and pass the exit for 138 (Pearblossom highway) and start looking out. then, when you just pass the exit for Avenue S, you will go directly in between the fault, where there is a world famous view.

That view is seen here:

I live on the fault..... you can see it, along with rocky-stripes (I forget their scientific name...) and bumpy rocks..... (sorry I'm not technical here!) in the "cajon pass" (freeway 15 slightly north of San Bernardino). Also, the hills on the north side of the mountain range (so, drive through the cajon pass. In Hesperia, Palmdale, that area you can see the fault.) Also, the San Bernardino mountains are the fault itself. And the San Gorgonio pass is two faults, seperating! 10 freeway east, the pass/faultline is from Redlands/Yucaipa area through to Cabazon/Palm Springs.

the fault isn't visible in the sense of "wow! there it is! " its just....part of the rolling hills landscape usually.
