California’s Great Beyond

Two Rivers Reserve

Two miles north of the Sonora Pass turnoff on highway 395 in Eastern Sierra’s Mono County, the Little Walker River merges with the famous brown-trout-laden West Walker River. It was surprising to discover that the confluence of these two rivers including a mile and a half of the famous Walker River was on a privately owned 150 acres in the process of being subdivided for several trophy homes. Wildlands acted quickly to purchase this extraordinary property and named it Two Rivers Reserve. The reserve abuts the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest on the north and west sides and the vegetation is great basin sagebrush dotted with Sierra junipers and stands of Jeffery pines, with willow woodlands along the two rivers.
