Safe Visit on National Forests and Grasslands

Hiking the ForestAs a visitor to our National Forests and Grasslands, you will find many opportunities to enjoy and explore nature’s creations. Our sites not only include the mighty timberlands, but mountains, hills, lakes, deserts, and the wildlife that inhabit the lands. These areas create great passageways for America’s highways, byways, and backroads leading to great recreation activities. However, because of the large territories that are covered by forest, many unforeseen dangers present unpredictable challenges for our visitors to have a safe visit. The following sections will allow you to examine some of our safety challenges and additional links that will offer extended exploration of the topics.
