isolated, white church is even here! Oh Darlene! Explore around the western village and pose around for some great photo opps. I saw a married couple (woman was pregnant too) taking a bunch of photos and were even dressed up. On top of all this there is a hiking trailhead in the back that I'd love to do next time. Parking: Tons of parking. It is one really massive ranch.

Great hiking spot where many Hollywood movies were shot! Visit the old west still standing where many shows like Mash and Doc Quinn were shot to name a few.

While a bit smaller than I did expect, this is still a great adventure place to explore. Aside from the ranch, there are great hiking trails.

Paramount ranch used to be the movie set for all the old western. Just a fun place to take the family and explorer.

In 1927 Paramount Pictures purchased 2,700 acres in this area and used it as a "movie ranch." Later, Paramount sold the southeast portion to William Hertz who built a permanent western town on the property. Through multiple ownership changes the town has remained and continues to be used for location shooting.

Paramount Ranch is an awesome less known park near Agoura. I've be a handful if times, twice for private events (people can have their event here, and it's beautiful and rustic/ranch like... Although you risk your event being crashed by day hikers and visitors. But I went to a wedding & a corporate event, and I've come hiking for the day). There's old western style buildings on the property, trails, picnic tables, etc. It's a cool place to see at least once. They film lots of shows here as well, so you may catch something being filmed while you visit! Fun place, trails are pretty easy.

Paramount Ranch is a great place for a hike. There's a Western Town there too. The surrounding hills are quite striking.

The Pacific Half Marathon starts here.

Photo op? Yes. (need ith permit for professionals)
Awesome western theme!
Hiking trails!
Lots of bugs!
Clean air!

Seriously awesome for photography. They have the studio western set up (used in Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman) and you can take photos there.

Lots of parking and hiking!

Downside:
Bugs everywhere
Must leave before sunset
Bathrooms alright

Upside: views and scenery

I liked it but it's far.
