Halfway between Barstow and Needles- visible from Route 66. 250 feet hike to the top, about a 3 mile hike round trip. Last volcanic activity? 10,000 years. After your hike, visit the Roys Motel Cafe & gas station- cold bottled Pepsi and Oreos. Currently No Vacancy at the Motel.
Pumpkin Rock is located in Horsetown USA, also known as Norco, CA, Just North of Corona off the 15 freeway It’s a great day Trip! Take the kids on a hike, it is STEEP, so wear hiking boots. Also alot of “art” on the rocks so may be some wording not appropriate for little ones. I parked at Pumpkin Rock South- Google maps off of Vandemolen and Valley Drive, near the golf course.
