  • Let's start at the road going in...right away you begin to understand you are on your way to a unique place. Passing some small alien spaceships, that the kids will love, keep going to the tower. It i...  more »

  • Unique offbeat tourist attraction from the 1920s. The view to the desert on a clear day is breathtaking. Relaxed atmosphere, good for a picnic. Restrooms. The boulder park with its carved rocks is fun to explore.
  • Great stop off the 8 to check out scenery from the tower & a good place to stretch your legs hiking up and around the rock caves. Interesting & cool things to buy in the tower also!
  • This place is family friendly with lots of history, dogs, caves and views to be had. Bring 6.50 cash per person to go up the tower and caves. Mashed sure to ask about the candy store and trains!
  • It's a little far off the highway if you're heading East but I thought it was well worth stopping at just to look around the base level and break up the drive. There is a great view of the highway climbing the hills and the desert beyond.
  • Its very run down and appears to be well on its way to being a junk yard or trash heap its hard to tell. They are even trying to charge to see it and the nearby caves which have been free to explore since i was a kid in the 60's-70's. Looks great from the freeway...
