While I do admit to not having watched many of the 400-plus movies that were filmed in this location, it was a treat to see the landscape. It was like, where am I? This is so cool. Some people camp overnight here.
I love how the movie museum is nearby. I went to the Alabama Hills first, then the museum. And, oh, there are so many wonderful opportunities for photography. This place is FREE and well-maintained.

Spring, summer, fall or winter the Alabama hills are an enchanting piece of high desert beauty. Even if you don't climb Mt. Whitney, it's well worth half a day or several days to just hang out in the splendor of the foothills with the backdrop of the tallest mountains in the lower 48. The movie museum in Lone Pine puts it all into another prospective.

We took the self guided car drive with the help of the tour book we got at the museum. We followed the odometer directions and looked for the landmarks. It was a little confusing. We finally figured it out, relaxed and jist enjoyed the scenery which was so interesting and different than anything we'd seen before. The downside was there were many rvs and trailers scattered throughout and kind of in the way.

Beautiful scenic turnout scattered throughout these hills. Also includes Movie Rd. where many westerns and other movies were filmed like The Lone Ranger, Tremors, How the West was Won. Enjoyed this tremendously. Dispersed free camping and some primitive campgrounds available. Peaceful and quiet.

Have eaten there many times and enjoy the food and the bakery. Food is very good quality and well prepared. Service is courteous and prompt, even when crowded. Do recommend!
