Salmon-Challis National Forest

Fall Colors have definitely hit the Wood River Valley.  Along the Wood river going north out of Ketchum you will first notice the Cottonwoods, they are turning slower than the Aspens, but are still quite beautiful especially with the rust color of the Willows at their bases.  You will see wonderful golden and red/orange Aspens as you continue north. East Fork road is just about in full color now with gold's and deep reds.  Salmon River Valley is also quite colorful.  Aspens are starting to turn yellow around Hailey and Bellevue.  The River Corridor (Road 227) is starting to turn on the Fairfield Ranger District.  Willows, aspen, and brush are turning yellow with some turning red/orange.  The fall colors have already passed their peak on the south end of the forest.

The Intermountain Region is a spectacular place to be in the fall. 
Get out and enjoy the beauty of your national forests.
Remember take only pictures and leave only footprints.

 


It is wise to obtain highway and weather information before leaving home and be prepared for winter weather while in the mountains. Many unpaved forest roads are quite slippery when wet, while some clay based roads simply become impassable.

This page is updated weekly during the fall season. Visit us again for updated colorful photos, as well as a list of recommended viewing areas. A photo gallery has been put together for your enjoyment. Photos were taken by Forest Service employees throughout the Region, as well as public forest visitors. You are free to download the photos in this gallery, except for those that have a copyright symbol next to them. If you have fall color photos you would like displayed on our web site or an area that you like to share with other, e-mail the information to the r4_fswebmaster.
