BLM Land- What does that mean?

Feb 192011

Many properties are advertised as bordering BLM land and often we are asked what this means.


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is an agency in the Department of Interior. The landscape that BLM manages in Northwest Wyoming is characterized by native rangeland for the most part. Sometimes BLM will adjoin National Forest.



 Buying Land Bordering BLM

Since it is public land, if a property adjoins BLM, as a land owner, you can horseback ride or hike from your property across the BLM. ATV’s can only be used on marked roads. Being situated next to BLM offers additional privacy to homeowners.


The Clark area, which is 30 miles north of Cody at the base of the Beartooth Mountains, is checkerboarded with BLM land and large expanses that are closer to/adjoining National Forest.
