Intermountain Region 4
Have a fun time and play safe recreating during all the seasons in our region of forests as they offer a variety of landscapes.
The National Forest System Lands of the Intermountain Region are located in the heart of the west, encompassing 12 forests and 1 grassland. Explore 34 million acres while enjoying all your favorite recreational activities including camping, fishing, hiking, biking, OHV use, boating, etc.
The forests range from heavily timbered slopes of central Idaho on the Payette National Forest to red rock open country in southern Utah. Forest lands in Nevada and the beautiful Bridger Teton National Forest of Wyoming round out the region. Please check our Alerts and Notifications and Fire Information before recreating in the Region. Forests implement closures and important notifications at various times for your safety.
