Paramount Ranch

Paramount Ranch

The Paramount Ranch property is a working movie ranch that allows the public to see filmmaking in progress.  


It also offers several miles of easy to moderate scenic hikes through chaparral, riparian, and valley oak savannah plant communities. Most hikes are named after T.V. and movie productions that were filmed here. Equestrians and mountain bikers may access these multi-use trails.


Wildlife sightings might include red-tailed hawks, acorn woodpeckers, coyotes, and deer. Be on the lookout for two native oak species—coast live oak and valley oak. 


Experience the rare valley oak savannah, which may become extinct within decades because of climate change.


Visiting the Paramount Ranch Western Town

Cross the bridge to get to the chapel used in HBO's "Westworld," It will be on your left. The only other building that still stands on the former Hertz Era Western Townsite is the train depot that was used in the T.V. show Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. All trailheads extend from this area, except the trail that goes toward Mulholland highway.
