Tongass National Forest - Welcome!

Sea Urchin








Welcome, The Tongass National Forest, the nation's largest national forest, covers most of Southeast Alaska, surrounding the famous Inside Passage. It offers unique chances to view eagles, bears, spawning salmon, and the breath-taking vistas of "wild" Alaska. You can take a sled-dog ride on a glacier, hike boardwalk trails, fish in streams or the ocean, or just relax at a remote cabin. The Tongass offers a vast array of fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, cabins, and bear viewing options. A few of our most popular sites are the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center in Juneau, Anan Wildlife Observatory in Wrangell, Fish Creek Bear Viewing Area in Hyder, and Pack Creek Brown Bear Viewing Area on Admiralty Island.
