Located in Placerita Canyon, the Walker Ranch was named for the area’s first homesteader, Frank Evans Walker, and features cool, shaded oak groves and a seasonal stream lined with willows and sycamores. The ranch was used from the earliest days of Hollywood film production, mostly for Westerns. The sole remaining building on the property, the Walker Cabin, was called "the hideout" for the many times it was used in this role.
Meet at the Walker Ranch entrance. We will look for Costa’s Hummingbird, Lazuli Bunting, flycatchers, warblers and much more.
