Mt Baldy

Mt. Baldy is an excellent adventure for any van or RV nomad looking to escape the city for the mountains for the day. There is a large parking lot that can accommodate your van or RV while you explore and hike the mountain. There is a chair lift at the trailhead parking that takes you to the “Top of the Notch,” where you can get a drink or lunch.

Saddleback Butte State Park

Saddleback Butte State Park is a great place for any van or RV nomad to spend the day hiking or camping. The park is easy to get to and offers plenty of parking. A 2-mile hike to the summit will provide amazing views of the Antelope Valley and the Mojave Desert. I particularly enjoy watching the planes take off and land at Palmdale Airport and Edwards AFB in the distance.
