Description

LA Weekly's Description

Located in the high desert near Agua Dulce Springs, 900-acre Vasquez Rocks Natural Park has an otherworldly beauty that's served as the perfect backdrop for scenes in everything from Star Trek to CSI. Administered by the L.A. County Department of Parks and Recreation, Vasquez Rocks features an amphitheatre, hiking trails and an equestrian staging area – horses not included.

Merchant's Description

Vasquez Rocks, located in the high desert near Agua Dulce Springs, features 932 acres of spectacular rock formations, Tataviam Indian sites, and a seasonal stream. The rocks’ history began in prehistoric times when the sandstone rocks were uplifted at a picturesque angle, showing their jagged red features. In 1874 Tiburcio Vasquez, one of California’s most notorious bandits, used these rocks to elude capture by law enforcement. His name has since been associated with this geologic feature. The park is a popular hiking, picnicking, and equestrian area and has been used in many hit movies, television shows and commercials.

    One of my favorite hikes in Northern L.A. Country. During the week if there is no filming in progress you can sometimes have it all to yourself. Limited cell coverage- which is nice! SUNSCREEN!

    Rock formations I remember from the old tv series Star Trek with Captain Kirk and Spock, Bones et al.
