The tour will incorporate some "Audie audio". Join us as we saddle up with one of Lone Pine's great ghost riders.

Lone Ranger The Lone Ranger has been in the rocks here in Lone Pine since 1938 when Bill Witney and John English directed The Lone Ranger serial. On this tour you will visit sites where this action classic shot, onto some of the locations for the Clayton Moore and John Hart Ranger we remember from early television. Finally, we travel out to where Disney shot scenes for the most recent incarnation.

Hopalong Cassidy Original Bar 20 Ranch Tour Lone Pine’s future looks brightest when honoring its storied past. So let’s jump on the time machine and visit the still-working cattle ranch which served as the original “Bar 20” in the first and best Hopalong Cassidy feature film made in 1935. Come and see the historic and beautiful Lubken Ranch. Incredibly, the many westerns film location books have all ignored it, because until 2011 its rich movie history was unknown – even at our own festival. We begin in the museum theater with a video compilation of western excerpts shot at this pastoral venue covering the period from 1926 though 1949. Read the Full Story
North South Tour Considered one of the most scenic drives, you'll see LOTS of the Alabama Hills.

Gunga Din Tour Filmed here in the summer and fall of 1938, Gunga Din remains to this day the largest production ever filmed in the Lone Pine area. The production company created huge sets, hired over a thousand extras, and built a tent city to house the cast and crew. It is recognized as one of the rare films of its era to stand up well to modern sensitivities. Visit the site of the temple, the village of Tanta Pur, battle scene locations and see the location of the bridge crossed by the elephants. Read the Full Story
