The 2.1-million-acre Sawtooth National Forest occupies a large portion of south central Idaho, stretching from the Salmon River in the north into the Raft River Mountains in northern Utah.

The Sawtooth National Recreation Area is known in the state as the “Crown Jewel of Idaho” and its spectacular scenery often turns up in statewide publications, websites, and features. The Sawtooth provides a wide spectrum of recreational opportunities and skill levels from family-oriented activities to professional sports.

The Sawtooth is an amazing forest. Nearly every project we do, whether a new opportunity, maintenance of a trail or facility that the public has been enjoying for decades, incorporates an element of landscape restoration in the work.

Come visit the Sawtooth National Forest and experience the spectacular outdoor recreation opportunities that draw millions of people here! -Becky Nourse

Becky Nourse has taken a position as the Deputy Regional Forester in the Alaska Region; Jeff Rivera is the Acting Sawtooth Forest Supervisor.
