This remote plateau, ringed by cliffs 800 feet high, is located between Johnson Canyon and Nipple Ranch Road. Access to the base of the mesa is very difficult, and very few people, if any, ever visit the top. Due to its inaccessibility, No Mans Mesa has never been exploited by man for traditional uses such as ranching or logging.
Good views of the mesa can be seen from the top of Deer Springs Canyon. The result of this isolation is that plant communities have been little altered. Scientists can study these communities to understand what healthy ecosystems look like, which allows us to better manage and restore damaged plant areas.
