BLM Opens Donated Land Near Granite Mountain, Near Mono Lake

An 80-acre parcel in the eastern Sierras is open for public access following a donation to the Bureau of Land Management Bishop Field Office. The parcel is located in the Granite Mountain Wilderness Study Area, east of Mono Lake. The Wilderness Land Trust recently acquired the land from a willing seller and donated it to the BLM to be managed as public lands.

Located in one of the most rugged and remote regions of California, the pinyon-juniper studded parcel is eight miles northwest of 8,800-foot Granite Mountain and accessible only on foot or horseback. These new public lands will be managed under the same guidelines as the surrounding BLM lands with an emphasis on conserving the natural values of the property.
