This is a beautiful place. A little hard to find, but that is maybe good, as to not be over crowded. The views are great, photo ops like crazy. If you like rocks. Also the hiking is good. Be interested to see the visitor center/museum place they were working on when we were there, when it opens.

As a big Star Trek fan, this was a must see site for my trip as it was used for shooting scenes in a number of episodes.

I struggled to find it signposted on leaving LA and managed to find it 30 minutes before the park was closed.

It was very atmosperic with the sun setting over the rocks, but I was surprised that you could drive virtually all round the rocks.

It may have been because I was hungry and tired of driving, but the site disappointed me.

How can anyone really rate a geological feature? Vasquez Rocks is truly unique as a natural feature and as the site of uncounted Western television and movie scenes, and is instantly recognizable to Star Trek fans, as well! It's better in the fall, winter, and spring, when the weather is cooler. They are building a new interpretive center, which promises to be a real asset to the site.
