Mojave Trails, Sand to Snow, and Castle Mountains National Monuments preserve some of the most unique and intact desert landscape left in the world so that generations can explore, experience, and enjoy it as it is today.
YOUR 3 Monuments include the longest undeveloped stretch of Historic Route 66, a rich tapestry of Native American cultural heritage, and the largest land gift to the American people in history. They connect the landscape, and connect us with its many stories.
Designated on February 12, 2016 – thanks to wide-ranging support – YOUR 3 Monuments are bright stars on the map for these lands we love, and place we play here in the rugged and beautiful California Desert. Sand to Snow and Mojave Trails are also hallmark additions to the National Conservation Lands – America’s newest collection of protected public lands and waterways.
