Words can't describe Alabama Hills. Childhood memories of the Lone Ranger, Roy Rogers and many other cowboys cone to mind as you meander through this amazing landscape.

Make sure to stop here and see where so many Westerns were filmed. Beautiful area to see. Brings back a lot of memories of the Westerns we have all seen.

You already know literally hundreds of western movies and TV shows were shot here, but you need to get out and walk amoung these magnificant rocks to really appreciate the beauty of this area.

While I do admit to not having watched many of the 400-plus movies that were filmed in this location, it was a treat to see the landscape. It was like, where am I? This is so cool. Some people camp overnight here. I love how...More

Beautiful scenic turnout scattered throughout these hills. Also includes Movie Rd. where many westerns and other movies were filmed like The Lone Ranger, Tremors, How the West was Won. Enjoyed this tremendously. Dispersed free camping and some primitive campgrounds available. Peaceful and quiet.

Have eaten there many times and enjoy the food and the bakery. Food is very good quality and well prepared. Service is courteous and prompt, even when crowded. Do recommend!

Once you've seen the western movie history museum, the next step is the Alabama Hills. This is where all those movies were shot. Want to be a kid again? Go on a treasure hunt, of sorts, and find all those places. Use the movie map...More

Yes, you can access this with cars, but be wise, as there are some roads that are not really made for normal non-4-wheel drive cars. I think it is pretty clear which ones will work for your car.
