This forest is also home to the Curlew National Grassland. The spectacular scenery of the forest is easily accessible from highways, byways and back doors. The bond between forest and community spans generations through family activities such as camping, hiking, hunting, fishing and riding off-highway vehicles. During the winter, the forest offers vast expanses of untracked powder.
