The Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, 2.3 million acres of varied landscape, extends from the Blue Mountains and rugged Wallowa Mountains down to the spectacular canyon country of the Snake River on the Idaho border.

The forest ranges in elevation from 875 feet in the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area to 9,845 feet in the Eagle Cap Wilderness Area.

We manage the forest as sustainable ecosystems providing clean water, wildlife habitat and valuable forest products. This setting offers a variety of year-round recreation opportunities.
