Great quiet hike. Plenty of trail options to circle Vasquez Rocks... please do not litter. Picked up a couple plastic bottles...

It's definitely an excuse for a hike. The Vasquez rocks area has some cool geological formations, cave paintings, great film history, and a labyrinth of trails to explore. Desert landscape isn't much to look at and a good portion of the area is "charmed" by the sound of the 14 Freeway. Little to no shade on any of the trails and the fact that it gets blazing hot makes sunscreen a must. There is some elevation gain depending on how you take the trails, but nothing strenuous. Running through the middle of the park is a little over 2 miles of the PCT that can be explored. If you enjoy being in the wilderness, proximity to civilization (and the freeway in particular) may make this one less enjoyable. However, it's still a good place to get out on a trail for a couple hours. ... oh, and watch your step. Horse poo everywhere.

Got it class of 2017. Night hike the aqua duct section during a full moon. I highly recommend.
