Whether or not a fan of Westerns or Star Trek, this is a fascinating place to see and explore. Even on HOT days, people come. Watch for rattlesnakes in the summer!! Once you see it, you recognize it when a backdrop for a movie, a...More

We visited the Vasquez Rocks because we are Western Movie and Television Fans, especially The Big Valley with Barbara Stanwyck. There are so many episodes that feature these iconic rocks, you could almost start your own Trivial Pursuit. Suffice to say that the rocks were...More

Visited here in April 2017 mainly for the star trek connection although the rocks have appeared in many other movie clips. Not much else there just a car park and some great short walks. Great sunsets and colours when the sun is going down in...More

We were in Santa Clarita and decided to look for spots to take pictures. Vasquez Rocks popped up as a suggestion about 30 minutes away. It really was a drive to get to it, out in the middle of nowhere but it was absolutely worth...More

A few hiking trails, very friendly staff made for a nice 2 hour stay at Vasquez. Some of the trails look bushwhacked so could be easy to stray off main paths. Mid May was a good time to be out but I imagine the heart...More

Worth going out of your way to see. Easy to get to, and you can either walk a bit or drive right into the area where they are. Many trails to walk on also. This rock outcropping has been the back drop for several movies...More

There's a new Nature Center to visit with displays of the history of City of Agua Dulce and Vasquez Rock Natural Area. I recommend hiking a portion of the PCT that goes thru the park. At one point you'll be hiking along the Escondido stream...More

Alright, we totally came to be Star Trek geeks, and we were only mildly disappointed (yet another film crew was bogarting all the good angles). But this park is a hiker's dream. We took the easy trails as we had a five-year old with us,...More

We were lucky enough to enjoy a presentation at the Women's club about Vasquez Rocks before we viewed the rocks. So glad we did as the in site made our visit so much better as we understood why the formations were like they were.

A filming site for Star Trek, Blazing Saddles and many westerns. I took an easy one hour 1.75 hour walk but could have enjoyed a lot more along with some rock scrambling.
