Recreational Uses 
Of City of Los Angeles
Eastern Sierra Land

The Eastern Sierra is truly a recreation paradise, from the tall mountain peaks laced with lakes and streams to the valley floors. Visitors to, and residents of, this beautiful area will find much to enjoy. Most of the land is owned and administered by the United States Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management.

The City of Los Angeles owns approximately 250,000 acres in Inyo County and 60,000 acres in Mono County. Much of the Owens Valley floor is comprised of City of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (DWP) land. About 75% of DWP-owned land in Inyo and Mono Counties is open to the public for such uses as fishing, hiking, hunting, nature studies, photography, painting, and other daytime recreational uses.
