Public Land Access & Corner Crossing

The topic of public land access and corner crossing is the subject of recent litigation in Federal court. Corner crossing involves stepping from one piece of public land to another at the common corner with two pieces of private property, all arranged in a checkerboard pattern. Corner crossing avoids setting foot on private land. On May 26, 2023, Chief U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl ruled that four Missouri hunters did not trespass when they corner crossed and passed through the airspace above Fred Eshelman’s Elk Mountain Ranch.
