Sawtooth National Forest - Great Places, Great Recreation!

 Recreational opportunities on the Sawtooth National Forest are unlimited. Throughout the Forest, a wide variety of opportunities exist from the very primitive to highly developed recreation sites. The season of the year makes no difference as the Sawtooth is a "Forest for all Seasons."   Wintertime offers outstanding experiences for cross-country skiing on both groomed and ungroomed trails.  Downhill skiing is offered at four developed winter sports areas that provide some of the finest terrain and snow conditions found anywhere.  Snowmobiling is popular with marked and groomed trails and warming huts available.  Springtime visits are rewarded with snow-capped mountain peaks, rushing streams and meadows carpeted with hundreds of varieties of wildflowers.  Summer visitors have more than 80 developed camping and picnic areas at their disposal.
