What you'll do

Note: If you don't see a preferred date listed, please contact host directly to request a date. Vasquez Rocks is one of the most epic landscapes in Southern California. You've seen it filmed as the planet Vulcan in the STAR TREK tv series and 2009 movie. It has been featured in hundreds of films, tv shows and commercials. It is a geological wonder with mammoth fins of 25-million-year-old sandstone jutting out of the ground at a 50 degree angle. Your guided tour of Vasquez Rocks will include a full host of movie history, natural history, Old West history, and living wildlife. The 2600-mile Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada passes through Vasquez Rocks and, for a mile or more, you will be officially walking to Mexico!
