Tongass National Forest - Welcome!

Patterson Glacier - Petersburg Ranger District


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.

You can now stay connected with the Tongass National Forest via Twitter and Facebook
