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!
