This Old West town at Paramount Ranch, which is authentic enough to fool a ghost, was forsaken by Hollywood.

Unfortunately, most of Paramount Ranch burned in the November 2018 Woolsey Fire. Only a few structures remain, including the Westworld church and the train depot. It’s still worth looking around but does not have the same charm as it did pre-fire.

We really did enjoy visiting Western Town and the story behind the racetrack was very interesting. But I would have hoped for more information. Almost no information is posted explaining what was filmed where. That would have made things much more interesting. Also, unless you...More

Best for hiking trails. There is a small western set and a visitors center. They were set up for a horror film when we were there so looked kind of scary. It was free and a perfect get away for getting out of doors on...More

Paramount Ranch is a lot of fun. They have regular events there, it's totally beautiful for hiking and dog friendly and the set backdrops are really cool places to take photos.

I guess I expected to see more, be able to wander in and out of the buildings, read about the western stars who walked these streets and get more of an old west feel, like I have on every visit to Old Tuscon in Tuscon,...More
