Recreation

The Willamette National Forest offers a stunning choice of year round recreation for day-trippers and vacationers alike from hiking, camping, fishing or skiing in the Cascade Mountains to picnicking or rafting along one of our scenic rivers.

Seven major volcanic peaks rise within the Forest's wilderness areas: Mt. Jefferson, Three Fingered Jack, Mt. Washington, the Three Sisters (North Sister, Middle Sister and South Sister), and Diamond Peak.

Don't know where to go or how to get there? We've organized our information into four large areas called travel corridors to to help you find a place on the Willamette National Forest for your favorite activity.

The travel corridors follow the four main highways (and rivers) across the Forest.
