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. The Tongass offers a vast array of fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, and bear viewing options. Our most popular is the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center. On the web site you will find hours of oporation, trails information, bear viewing information, and a downloadable PDF version of the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center Map & Information brochure.
