Beautiful and Clean

I live within walking/running distance and frequently go there to run. It is very clean and very quiet; I would recommend it to families.

I am smitten with this place. The center itself (check opening hours) is kid friendly. Loved the picture of the huge Joshua tree that is no more. The nature walk along the dirt path is much easier on "the joints" and roadrunners and rabbits are pretty common. Not a place I like to walk in the summer heat, noone around... More

Great little place in the desert to go and view those clear, night skies. the high desert gets beautiful skies and on weekends many locals with telescopes to out to meet the public and let them look. The tours are fun in the moonlight and we loved visiting the museum area to learn about desert animals. Great romantic night's stroll... More

I am not very big on taking walks, however the prime desert Woodland preserve has very easy walking nature trails that show your life in the desert as well as plants. Be sure to have your water in June, July, and August sometimes the weather can hit the triple digits.

This place is tucked away in a residential neighborhood but will allow for an up-close-and-personal experience with nature. The walk is very easy, so if you're looking for a strenuous hike this isn't the place, but it's perfect for strolling and getting some exercise and fresh air while checking out the Joshua trees and other dessert plant life. You're also... More

The Prime Desert Woodland Preserve is a very inauspicious place - its operated by the municipality, so the website is naturally not "touristy", the signage is underwhelming, and it's carved out of surrounding housing developments, but I would recommend that everyone visiting the Antelope Valley take time to visit. It's close and convenient, so there are no worries about getting... More

Overall you should appreciate the extensive amount of effort that it took to transform the desert into this place of scenic walkways. Incredible and quiet. A job well done so go enjoy it.

This is a local's favorite. It is right by my house, and I escape here whenever I can. It is over one hundred acres of natives trees and habitat. Trails traverse the entire area, and many runners, including myself utilize this area. It is great for any kind of visit. Come on Sundays, and their visitor center is open. The... More
