Historical and scenic high mountain summer grazing range in the Bodie Hills combined with high desert winter grazing range near Mono Lake in Eastern Mono County, California.
Property consists of 10,000 non-contiguous deeded acres interspersed in The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) grazing permits. The Bodie Hills grazing permit surrounds the ghost town of Bodie and extends north through meadows and aspen groves surrounding the Halfway, Meadow Canyon, Big Flat and other deeded parcels. Throughout the deeded parcels are 79 stock water righted springs and creeks dating back to the 1860's. The properties range in elevation from around 7,000 ft to 9,500 ft.
