A great little, totally chill lovely park/reserve not that far from LA. This is a hidden gem that is not on many people's radar screen. Worthwhile for sure.

A few hiking trails, very friendly staff made for a nice 2 hour stay at Vasquez. Some of the trails look bushwhacked so could be easy to stray off main paths. Mid May was a good time to be out but I imagine the heart...More

There's a new Nature Center to visit with displays of the history of City of Agua Dulce and Vasquez Rock Natural Area. I recommend hiking a portion of the PCT that goes thru the park. At one point you'll be hiking along the Escondido stream...More
