Vasquez Rocks

Vasquez Rocks Natural Area

LEVEL: Beginner
DISTANCE: 2 Miles

HIKE LEADER: Pat


PARKING: Free!

* Park in the 2nd Parking Lot near the portable toilets
(all the way to the back of the parking area).

If you only have time to visit one wilderness area in Santa Clarita, this is where you should go. And if you live in the SCV, this is probably one of your favorite places.

Why?

It is easy to access, and the spectacular rock formations are easy to climb and are a favorite to photograph.

And don't be surprised if you experience a little deja veux, because Vasquez Rocks has been the location of numerous television programs, music videos, and feature films--dating back to the silent film days.


PLEASE BE CAREFUL
Because of the gradual incline, it is easy to feel safe climbing the huge rocks at Vasquez, which reach 150 feet in height. Respect the dangers and keep your children away from the edges when climbing.


WHAT TO BRING:
- Water
- Hat
- Sunscreen
- Camera
- Layers, Jacket, Sweater
- Snacks
