Adventures In America’s National Forests

As part of the US Forest Service protocol, the NFS (National Forest System) preserves hundreds and millions of acres, ensuring a healthy ecosystem. National forests are more than simple bio reserves. These places also act as astonishing, crowd-pleasing wildlands on Earth.

The first national forest was named Yellowstone Park Timberland Reserve. It edged Yellowstone National Park and was taken care of under the 1891 Forest Reserve Act by Benjamin Harrison (then president). Today, 150+ National Forests exist in America., with guarded officials offering guided tours of the mesmerizing greeneries they behold. Continue with your reading to discover the best of the places. Also, we will help you decide why you should book from OYO hotels on your trip to the US.  

Must Visit National Forests In The USA

To enthrall yourself in Mother Nature’s wonders, visit these captivating national forests and soak in their trueness and tranquility. Here is a list of the must-visit National Forests in America and the adventures offered by them. 

1. Tongass Forest

As big as more than half of North Carolina State, the Tongass National Forest spreads across 16.5 million acres. The place is well known for its exclusive western hemlock, Sitka spruce, and cedar spreads. You also get to view glaciers and ice fields once inside the premises. Over ⅓ of the forest is a national wilderness, safeguarding bears’ natural habitats – black and brown, black-tailed deer, mountain goats, wolverines, harbor seals, bald eagles, and river otters.

Talking about adventure, you can take a marine tour inside the forest. It has a productive inland sea – with a 500-mile-long archipelago housing 1,000+ islands. Countless channels interconnect them all. If not the water, you can go hiking as well. Nugget Falls trails in Juneau, Indian River Trail in Sitka, and Rainbird trails in Ketchikan are some of the top hikes to participate in.    

2. Coconino Forest

The Coconino National Forest lies concealed amongst the sandy landscape and saguaro cacti. Here, you will explore breathtaking views of the panoramic red rock appearances and alpine tundra. Regarding wildlife, the place is a habitat for multiple wildlife. The list includes javelinas, elk, rattlesnakes, and black bears.  

Sedona and Flagstaff towns are located within the Coconino National Forest. A 1.9-million-acre area of protected land, the wilderness is fringed by four more national forests. Also, here, you get an overview of the San Francisco Peaks — including Humphreys Peak (12,600 ft) — and the Sunset Crater National Monument. Tourists can participate in ample outdoor adventures within Coconino National Forest. They can enjoy everything from swimming and fishing along Wet Beaver Creek to biking and hiking on the red rock around Carroll Canyon.

3. White Mountain Forest

Located across 800,00 acres, the White Mountain National Forest is home to mesmerizing scenery in the USA. Among all other attractions, the 6,288-foot-tall Mount Washington is the primary highlight of the region. You can partake in a hiking trail to the top of the mountain. Take up the challenge of deceiving the “world’s most threatening weather.” Wind speeds here exceed 200 mph, and as of records, the place has received 4 ft of snow within 24 hours.

Apart from the adventure, you can explore a densely wooded landscape inside the forest. Maple, oak, pine, birch, and hemlock dominate the lower levels. As you move into the higher range of the forest, fur and spruce take over the place. Moose, peregrine falcons, and black bears are among the wild animals you will encounter here.     

4. Bridger-Teton Forest

The Bridger-Teton National Forest is spread across 1.2 million acres of protected land. It is known to be one of Earth’s most intact ecosystems near the temperate zone. This magnificent terrain has dense alpine meadows, glaciers, miles of rivers, limestone peaks, and water streams. It is the Gros Ventre Slide Area, which forms the forest’s primary geological attraction. This is an elongated scar reminiscent of the 1925 landslide, which blocked the Gros Ventre River. As a result, the place now has the Lower Slide Lake, which is 5 miles long. 

Once done with the side strolls and nature views, you can join experienced ranchers on a 2 to 4-hour horseback ride through the forest’s trails or enroll on a snowmobile sightseeing tour. Also, there are guided hot air balloon tours available that you can take to experience a bird’s eye view of the Yellowstone Plateau and the Teton Mountains.
