Looking for a bit of a wild excursion? Take Pioneertown Road 4 miles north of Yucca Valley through breathtaking canyons. You will find yourself traveling back to the old time western flavor of Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, and Hopalong Cassidy. Pioneertown was originally built to film cowboy movies and TV shows. In more recent times, film crews have returned to make commercials against the rugged natural beauty and rustic backgrounds that still define Pioneertown. It is currently a popular music venue and draws crowds from all over southern California and visitors from as far away as New York. An evening at Pappy and Harriet's restaurant promises to be entertaining any night of the week. Don't be surprised if a gunfight breaks out. It's all part of the wild, wild west.
Crestview Drive & SR247
In 1881, Chuck Warren decided to settle here after herding cattle from Arizona through the Morongo Basin. He and his two sons dug the first well in Yucca Valley, building a windmill to pump the water and a reservoir of rock and cement. They added a bunkhouse, barn and corral, which became the first settlement established in Yucca Valley. To visit this historic landmark, go east on Crestview Dr. off of SR247 until the road dead ends.
