As part of the 15th anniversary celebration of BLM's National Conservation Lands, the agency has developed online recreational guides that make it easy for you to connect to these lands. These areas are part of an active, vibrant landscape where people live, work, and play.

The new maps, available for 7 National Conservation Lands units in California, provide interactive navigability for BLM recreation sites and trails, along with photos and site-specific information. Start your experience today!

What are BLM's National Conservation Lands? In the King Range, it's the beauty of the ocean meeting the mountains...and it's land kept natural and undeveloped.  It's 80 miles of hiking trails plus biking trails and camping...and it's a variety of plants and willdife.  I'm glad this will always be here for all to enjoy.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) manages 15.2 million acres of public lands in California - nearly 15% of the state's land area - and 1.6 million acres in northwestern Nevada.  BLM California also administers 47 million acres of subsurface mineral estate underlying federal surface land, 2.5 million acres underlying privately owned land, and 592,000 acres of Native American tribal land where BLM has trust responsibility for mineral operations. The BLM's multiple-use and sustained yield mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.  The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
