Welcome to the Alabama Hills

The silence, open vistas and natural beauty of the Alabama Hills reflect a sense of peace, a respect for the land and accessibility for responsible users.


A Range of Discovery

From the grand scale of the majestic Sierra Nevada to the smallest details of vibrant spring wildflowers, from the sudden power of the winter wind to the timeless processes of geology, the Alabama Hills draw people to wander, contemplate, experience solitude and enjoy an incredible range of discovery and activity.

While visitation and multiple use by outdoor enthusiasts, sports lovers, artists and visitors is increasing, the rocks, roads, hiking paths, creeks and flora remain scenic and unspoiled. Film industry use continues, but with a heightened sense of history for both the area and the films of Hollywood.

The fragility of the area, management for sustainable activity, and the mutual respect of the stakeholders add to the area’s unique and special needs. The play of light and quality of air lift the spirit and assure the participants that all challenges can be addressed and solutions found by listening and working together. These Alabama Hills continue to foster an important and complex relationship with all of us.


The Alabama Hills Stewardship Group was established in November 2006 to promote the long term vision, conservation, use, enhancement, and enjoyment of the Alabama Hills. The group, in association with the Bureau of Land Management, has worked collaboratively to create a vision and action plan to address priority management issues in the area along with ongoing stewardship projects and interpretive events.
