While some national parks often steal the attention, some national forests give them a run for their money.
This national forest is 3.4 million acres of public land. It’s a part of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
One of the oldest national forests in the United States is Gifford Pinchot National Forest, located in southwest Washington State.
The park offers activities to do year-round. Whether you want to hit the slopes, snowshoeing, or snowmobiling, winter here can be a paradise.
The forest is home to the largest wilderness area in the continental U.S. called Frank Church: River of No Return Wilderness Area.
