Volcanic Tablelands


The Volcanic Tablelands is a vast volcanic landscape that was formed over 700,000 years ago by materials spewing from the Long Valley caldera, located to the northwest.


From Bishop, take State Highway 6 north to Five Bridges Road, then turn left. Proceed on Five Bridges Road 5 miles until it turns into a dirt road. At the entrance to the area, there is a BLM kiosk that provides map and route information for the Tablelands.
