With over 1.5 million acres, the Willamette National Forest is home to eight wilderness areas, including the popular Three Sisters Wilderness and Mt. Jefferson Wilderness, epic mountain biking trails, a variety of backpacking and day hiking opportunities, waterfalls, wildflowers, boating, swimming and much more!
