9:00 a.m. Hike – Inside Truckhaven Rocks         3 Hours
Join Volunteer Naturalist Paul Larson for a moderate 3-mile hike up a wash into Truckhaven Rocks to a sandstone formation 4-5 million years old. These rocks are formed from sediments derived from local rock, are steeply tilted to the north, and have been called the “Swiss cheese” of our local desert. At one point we can climb up one of these tilted slabs for a great view. Bring water, snack, hat, and sturdy hiking shoes. Meet at the half-circle parking area at Mile Marker 36.2 on Highway S-22 heading East to the Salton Sea.

1:00 p.m. Walk  - Desert Scents            1 Hour
