Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Remember those never-ending poppy ?elds from The Wizard of Oz? You can visit their real-life counterparts right here in the Antelope Valley.

This otherwise nondescript patch of the western Mojave becomes a brilliant carpet of orange when the conditions are right and the state flower makes its annual appearance. Unlike their Ozian counterparts, Eschscholzia californica won’t put you to sleep forever—they just make for phenomenal photographs."
