The story of Mentryville parallels that of other flash-in-the-pan boom towns that sprouted suddenly and died quietly throughout California during the 1800s. Mentryville's few remaining structures stand as silent reminders of a bygone era, when migrant seekers of gold, both yellow and black, journeyed from one locale to the next on the news of a fresh strike. Visit Mentryville for an authentic look into California's "black gold" boom town era. As Mentryville welcomes new explorers, the next chapter in her story begins.
Location: Take the Pico Canyon Road (Lyons Avenue) exit off of California Interstate 5. Proceed west along Pico Canyon Road approximately 3 miles. Keep left and take the dirt road past the gate.

Placerita Canyon Nature Area & Walker Cabin
Sometimes when hiking you come across little places in the wild that take on a magical look because of lighting, rainfall, or other forces of nature. Early morning or late afternoon seems to be the best times to discover these magic places. Also, the cooler temperatures at the opening and the closing of the day make hiking more enjoyable. So come out to Placerita Canyon and see if you can find your own magic place. Our refurbished nature center building is now open. Parts of the building have been outfitted with temporary displays (museum and classroom) as we begin the process of designing and installing state of the art interpretive center exhibits.
The historic Walker Cabin, built by Frank Walker around 1920, is located within the Placerita Canyon Natural Area. The cabin served as the family's second home in the area for about 10 years, until they moved into a larger house they built further up the canyon. Walker Cabin has been fully restored and refurnished and provides visitors with a sense of what life was like in Placerita Canyon for this pioneering family.

Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park north of Santa Clarita off the Antelope Valley Freeway (SR-14) is a 750-acre reserve that once served as a hideout for outlaw Tiburcio Vasquez, and was a shelter for the Tatavian Indians. The unique rock formations are a familiar sight having been the background for many films and commercials. Rock climbing is the primary sport, but for a less perilous workout, saddle up for a riveting ride or go it on foot along the many hiking trails in this rocky terrain. In addition, you'll enjoy family campgrounds, hiking and horseback trails.

Rancho Camulos Museum
"Where the history, myth, and romance of Old California still linger"
It is a National Historic Landmark where the early California lifestyle is preserved in its original rural environment. What began as part of the 48,000 acre Mexican land grant, Rancho San Francisco, deeded to Antonio del Valle in 1839 is still a 1,800-acre working ranch. Rancho Camulos was also the setting for "Ramona" an 1884 novel by Helen Hunt Jackson that generated national interest in the history of Hispanic settlement in California and the impact on Native Americans. The non-profit museum is a portion of the ranch containing the main adobe, cocina, chapel, schoolhouse, and beautiful grounds. Here the history and culture of the people of Camulos from the Tat avian Indians, through the del Valle family who established the rancho in the mid-1800s, to the Rubel family who purchased the property in 1924 are preserved. Docent led one- hour tours are conducted Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1-4 PM. The suggested donation is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children and students. Private group and school tours and special events such as weddings can also be arranged.
