Ridge Route Ranch is close to Los Angeles with a far away feel. Film productions can request a waiver to be part of the Secondary Film Zone. The Ranch is privately owned with miles of trails, dirt roads, large oaks, pine forests, valleys, mountains, open areas, two horse arenas, large gravel parking lot; all with amazing views.
The Ranch sits at a 3200 ft altitude and gets snow during the winter. We have starry nights and a ranch house. There is a 3500 ft. airport runway next door and we have the only Animal Alley for filming (small to large animals, one to a herd, walking to running).
The Ridge Route Ranch is 20 miles north of Castaic. 4 miles east of I-5 off the 138 (near Gorman).
We are private and secluded. There are no time limits on shoots and we are available all year long. We are film friendly and have no neighbors.
Crew size of:
1-15 people = $1200/day
16-60 people= $2500/day
There is a mandatory site manager fee of $250
We have horses, bison, and cattle for rent. Depending on the need and number of animals, the pricing is on a sliding scale.
Pricing does not include use of Ranch House. There is an additional fee of $1000/day to use it.
We're a ranch; we recommend the crew to wear long pants and boots.
Nights are cold; bring a jacket.
Smoking is only permitted in designated areas.
Trash should be placed in the bins and we'll take care of the rest
The Ranch is completely off the grid for water (windmill pumps about 1400 gallons per day) and we are off
the grid for electricity as well (we have multiple solars panels and a small wind turbine). We suggest productions to bring a generator or talk to us, we cannot provide electricity on a large scale.
