Lone Pine’s Hollywood connection principally stems from the presence of the beautiful Alabama Hills, a collection of rocky formations in the foothills above town perfect for filming westerns. Numerous dirt roads ply though the hills, and if you’re interested you can obtain a map of the rock formations and various film locations from the National Forest Visitor Centre south of town. To get to the hills, drive straight uphill from Lone Pine on the Whitney Portal road.
