Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve, Lancaster Reviews - Write a Review

  • Caught at the right time of year, this place is a natural wonderland. The surreal landscape of orange is something to behold. I noticed one thing beyond the beauty. A lack of trash. Someone must pick it up because our society as a whole leaves something to desire in the leave not trace department.

  • The Poppy Reserve is the best place in this whole area ...not only poppies but a large assortment of wild flowers and rattlesnakes too! Exciting! But it is posted for the snakes... be sure to stay on the trails and not crush any flowers.Thank you!

  • In short some nice patches of Poppy and Daisy. However the line of cars backed up at least a half a mile from the park entrance was the most amazing thing to see . We parked on Lancaster Road. and walked about a mile or so to the park entrance where we walked the loop around the park. There were some nice areas to view the wildflowers and occasionally some very nice ones. Not as crowded on the trails as one would think from the line of cars except around the visitor center and of course the bathrooms where it felt like being at a concert. Still a nice way to spend the afternoon.

  • An unexpected excursion! Absolutely beautiful. It looks like the hills are on fire. An absolute treat to park on the side of the road and walk down paths out to amazing fields. Don't just drive by. Lots of people around when we went, but its a huge space - you weren't right next to people. There are snakes (posted) so be mindful. This is also in the desert and all looks the same - pay attention to where you walk and where your car was! (drop a PIN on GOOGLE MAPS)

  • If you're looking to do some easy hiking and see a beautiful field if flowers, this is your place to go. Minus the $10 parking fee and the annoying traffic to get there (including entering and exiting the property) this place is a great way to spend some time in the mountains. Make sure to take some sun screen as you will get sun burnt thanks to the lovely wind and the open skies. Remember there is no flower picking allowed. There are several trails you can take, just follow the signs. At the end, make sure to check out the building with historical facts and watch out for rattle snakes.
