About Us

Tahoe National Forest Map The Tahoe National Forest is located in the northern Sierra Nevada (east of Sacramento) and extends from the foothills across the Sierra crest to the California state line. It includes over 850,000 acres of public land interspersed with 350,000 acres of private land in a checker board ownership pattern.

The Tahoe National Forest does not include Lake Tahoe (visit the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit website for more information).

Rivers, snow capped peaks and dense forests offer outstanding recreation year round. A complex set of ecosystems are found as the terrain ascends from 1,500 feet along the western boundary to over 9,000 feet along the crest. The forest provides a variety of resources and opportunities and is managed by the Forest Service. For more information on accessible recreation facilities on the Tahoe National Forest follow this link. More.....
