One aspect that makes the Eastern Sierra such an enjoyable place is its wide-open spaces. It represents some of the most accessible wilderness areas in California. The recreational opportunities on LADWP Eastern Sierra land include fishing, camping, golf, hiking, rock climbing and sight-seeing.

People from all over the world visit the Eastern Sierra to experience some of the most challenging and beautiful climbs in iconic rock formations.
