Every spring, the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve comes alive with the seasonal surprises of the Mojave Desert Grassland habitat. The duration and intensity of colors and fragrances vary from year to year. The wildflower season generally lasts from mid-February to May, with a variety of wildflowers creating a colorful mosaic that changes daily.
Eight miles of trails through the gentle hills, including a paved section for wheelchair access, make the park a wonderful place for hiking and exploring any season. Get out of town and relax in the silence of the countryside, with birds singing and hawks gliding silently overhead.
Benches located along the trails make it a good place to sit quietly and watch out for wildlife, such as meadow larks, lizards and gopher snakes. If you're lucky, you might see a coyote or a bobcat. Numerous burrows around the trails may shelter mice, gophers, rats, beetles, scorpions, or others. Commercial and student filming / photography requires permission. No dogs, no bikes on the trails, no drones, no flowers.
