Pecten Reef via Aliso Creek

Pecten Reef via Aliso Creek Professional Review and Guide

"Pecten Reef is a limestone outcrop riddled with huge fossilized pecten shells
(scallops) dating back to when this part of Orange County lay beneath a shallow tropical sea. The shortest hike to the reef is
a 1.5-mile loop from Sheep Hills Park, but this longer trip offers a pleasant chance to explore Aliso Creek along the way."
