Hi Vista is an unincorporated community in Los Angeles County, California, United States. Hi Vista is in northeastern Los Angeles County, in the Antelope Valley, also known as "the high desert," which is geographically in the south western part of the Mojave Desert. Unlike the rest of the Los Angeles area, Hi Vista is a quite rural and mostly undeveloped community with a total population of 1,046 people, as of July 01, 2015.

Hi Vista is surrounded by Edwards Airforce Base, 22 miles to the north in Kern county, Adelanto, 31 miles to the east in San Bernardino county, Lake Los Angeles, 11 miles to the south, and Lancaster, 21 miles to the west. Hi Vista is sometimes confused with being Lancaster because both cities have the same zip code of 93535. Hi Vista is home to Saddleback Butte State Park, Butte Valley Wildflower Sanctuary, Phacelia Wildlife Sanctuary, and the world famous "Kill Bill" church. Local students now attend Eastside High School in Lancaster, instead of Littlerock, which was over 30 miles away.
