Wallace Creek is a creek with a twist. A great earthquake shook the mountains, ripping a deep gash through the rock formations. Wallace creek displays a large tear stretching across the land over San Andreas fault line.

It’s a great spot to see the San Andreas fault . We missed the Spring flowers so there wasn’t much to look at . Steep uphill at the beginning of the trail after that it’s all flat .

First to Review

Mostly uphill to the top then I ran down to the parking area. Nice view of the San Andreas Fault with wildflowers all around!
