“climb to the tippy top!”

Vasquez Rocks Natural Area
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed January 8, 2014

this was probably the scariest climb i've ever been on. i went all the way to the tip of the rock and i had to take a few breaks because i had literally reached my "scared limit." i needed a rest to let my fear lower a bit so that i could continue. it never decreased but i kept going anyway. it was hella windy that day which is probably why i was sooo scared to climb/crawl to the top. eventually i made it to the top and it felt amazing but the wind had me hugging the rock. there was a point where i thought the wind might've made the rock shake but i'm sure it was all in my imagination haha. anyways, this place is definitely worth the visit. there are less scary rocks to climb and explore.

this is a great place to visit if you like geological formations. the hiking trails are very interesting, and some of the pics you get to climb up to are just awesome.

An amazing rock formation. Hiking for all levels. Usually quiet (with the exception being your visit coordinating with a youth group or a film set). Do watch for the snakes sunning themselves on the rocks -- my husband and sun were petrified when they saw a rattler.

You can see the Rocks from US 14 on your way to Lancaster/Palmdale. It is worth a trip to see them up close. Do check when the park will be open. Walking is easier from the parking lot. Studios use this location for many stories, Star Trek used it a lot. Bring a few props and you can get great photos.

Vaseques Rocks has been an old time favorite hiking place. Not to mention in many movies you will recognize the famous rocks!
