Classic Trek filming locations

I’ve been asked about whether it’s possible to visit any of the places where Classic Trek was filmed. Trek, of course, was mostly filmed indoors on Desilu and Paramount soundstages, but several episodes were filmed in outdoor locations.

Here’s a link to a listing of the filming locations used in all of the Treks:

The location most often used for TOS outdoor scenes is Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park in northern Los Angeles County (including the episodes "Arena", "The Alternative Factor", "Shore Leave", and "Friday's Child") .

For anyone attending the con “enterprising enough” (OK, OK, so I don’t usually indulge in puns) to want to visit, you can find driving directions here:

Maybe a group of people would want to go? Feel free to discuss on the list. (I’m embarrassed to admit I’ve never been to Vasquez Rocks... though I have driven past that area any number of times.)
