Sawtooth National Forest

This 2.1-million-acre forest stretches from the salt flats of the historic Great Salt Lake to Hyndman Peak, which tops 12,000 feet. The forest is a gold mine for those who love the outdoors, with its 1,100 lakes and thousands of miles of rivers and streams.

The Sawtooth National Recreation Area is part of the forest, which also contains 193 developed recreation sites including ski areas, visitor centers, boat ramps, campgrounds and ski areas.

Mountain biking is an increasingly popular activity in some areas of the forest. Equestrians who use a wheelchair will find horse mounting ramps at Third Fork and Independence Lakes trailheads.
