Make sure you stop in the Visitor's Center for maps. There are live snakes, scorpions, and tarantulas behind glass on display so you can learn to ID them. There is a nice gift shop there as well.

If you're in a hurry and don't have time to stop, the Vasquez Rocks can easily be seen on the west side of Highway 14, which runs between Santa Clarita and Palmdale.
