Hiking Saddleback Butte State Park Campground

See also

Drive a short distance towards Visalia and you can enjoy the amazing hiking trails at the Saddleback Butte State Park Campground. There are also camping sites at the Pearblossom California Cam Ground which is also in the Saddleback Butte State Park. This park is not crowded so you can go hiking in peace and enjoy your thoughts and the sounds of nature. The hiking trails begin the the park which is just over the tiny hill off of the Antelope Freeway near the Antelope Valley. The hiking trail boasts campgrounds with full amenities. The hiking trail is desert terrain. If you have been to the Joshua Tree National Park or the Anza Borrego Desert State Park you will recognize some of the plant life and scenery. The hiking trails are not shaded. Make sure you bring water for your hiking experience. You may want to consider bringing a camelback so that you can sip water the entire way instead of having to pull out a bunch of water bottles. It also saves you having to pack out trash. The hiking trail has almost no shade as mentioned previously so bring sunscreen. You also may want to bring some bug spray just to be safe although from personal experience bugs are typically not a problem.

The hiking trail starts and ends at campgrounds so you may want to take advantage of this. There are many people who use tents in these campgrounds. Additionally if you have dogs the campgrounds typically allows dogs. The rule with dogs is typically that you must have the dogs on a leash. The hiking trail is typically open year round. The elevation gain along the trail is about 2,700. Prior to going to this trail I would recommend shopping for any food and drinks you may want. There is typically little to no food or drinks available near or around the trails and the nearby city of Pearblossom may be more expensive than your local area. The hiking trail is not too populated so you can enjoy solitude and quiet as you go hiking. Unlike the typical hiking trails you will often go miles without hearing any animal sounds. There are desert plants and succulents everywhere.
