This is prime hot hot desert, bring water! Stopped briefly and walked about, well kept park with nice trails in the desert. Clean bathrooms and nice individual picnic shelters to escape some of the sun. Can't imagine this place gets too many daily visitors; we were the only ones there mid-afternoon. Many movies are filmed nearby here.

My visit was in 2001 but the web site will only allow me to list 2013 visits. I imagine that the state park has changed little since that time. My friend Mike and I were visiting this park in June of that year since we had business in Los Angeles less than 70 miles away and I told him that... More

Very cold in the winter and extremely hot in summer, best time to visit is spring or fall. The whole time we were hiking there we did not see a soul. It is worth it to take a side trip to nearby Devil's Punch Bowl

My kids love to climb rocks. This is the best place to do it. The winds are going crazy at this area during winter and early spring, but it is great in summer. It has a trail about an hour and a half walk. Great view of San Bernardino Mountains and Angeles National Forest State Park. There's a BBQ area.... More

Way, way out at the far reaches of Los Angeles County are some eerily fascinating wildlife reserves and parks. Visible from many miles away, Saddleback Butte rises out of the desert floor like a specter; many don't realize this formation is also a state park where one can go hiking, camping or just stroll around in the profound silence of...
