  • On the last leg of Route 66 between Barstow and LA lies Elmer's bottle tree ranch. This is a must see for anyone. True Americana - the real Route 66. What Elmer has achieved with bottles, junk, a weld...  read more »
  • I visited the Bottle Tree Ranch with my wife and kids aged 10 to 13 on our way from Vegas to L.A. We deliberately made the detour along the old Route 66 road so we would pass the Ranch. This was my se...  read more »
  • Driving from Vegas to Los Angeles with two kids meant I was looking for a couple family friendly stops along the way. We got out and wandered the bottle tree forest, delighting in the wonderful detail...  read more »
  • Original and unique place over the 66. It is a curious place, like an orchard where bottles looks to had grown up. And it is bigger than I expected, placed in a section of the 66 where there are a lot of paints of its logo in the road, very enjoyable.
  • This place is great! I will be bringing the kids again, maybe it'll be cooler in the winter and we can have a sandwich. There's so many things to look at and have the kids point out that they find.
  • Great stop been here twice and never actually met the guy that owns the place but I always put a few bucks in his donation box. Great location, you might actually catch a train and sunset in the background. This is out in the middle of nowhere so make sure you have gas and take water. Watch your kids! Don't let them break anything!
  • On vacation from the UK. Looked for the Bottle Tree Ranch in the 9pm darkness on Rt66 heading back towards Hwy15. Suddenly, on the RHS of the road its upon us. I specifically sought it as I had saved, for 10yrs, a beer bottle that I had bought in Hong Kong, green glass, in the shape of a Buddha. The bottle is so unusual, I knew it wouldn't be out of place on one of Elmers trees in this iconic location. Its now on a tree branch, a gift to Elmer for creating such a great piece of artwork.
  • Went with a friend and we absolutely loved it. So interesting and unique can't wait to take my family
