Pinnacles Expansion to Add Almost 5,000
Administration has proposed purchasing the 1,967-acre
Pinnacles Ranch (located on the eastern side of the
Monument) and adding it to the Monument, as well
as transferring 2,939 acres of BLM land (5 parcels in
various locations bordering on the Monument) to the
Park Service. This would increase the area of the
Monument by roughly 30%.
Peninsula Open Space Trust to Buy Loma
agreed to purchase the 493-acre Loma Prieta Ranch,
which lies between the Sierra Azul
Open Space Preserve and the
Forest of Nisene Marks State Park. If the deal
becomes finalized, the land will be added to the
neighboring parkland over the next few years.
