The Cajon Pass is important in the Geology of southern California because of the coming together of two major structural features of the state. These are the San Andreas Fault Zone and the eastern portion of the Traverse Range.

The purpose of this investigation is to make a complete study of the Geology and structures of this area with special reference to the structural and stratigraphic complexes that occur. It is the hope of this author to make a contribution to the field of Geology by doing an investigation of an area that has not been covered except in passing by other geologists working on other problems.
