One of the best places to view the Garlock fault (and it's little sister, the El Paso fault) is in Mesquite Canyon (EP100) just a bit north of the Redrock-Randsburg Rd. Mesquite Springs in the same general area was once an important desert watering spot in the 1800's, but geologic activity changed the water table and the springs eventually dried up. The namesake for the Garlock fault, the ghost town of Garlock, is also nearby but on private property.Over the years there have been, small, events around the Garlock, but the Garlock itself has not been active, as far as I know, in historic times.
