Welcome to the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest

The Wallowa-Whitman National Forest encompasses 2.4 million acres of public lands in northeastern Oregon and western Idaho. Our staff serve the public from offices in Baker City, La Grande, and Joseph, OR; Riggins, ID; and Clarkston, WA.

Ecosystems range from the alpine peaks of the Elkhorn, Seven Devils, and Wallowa Mountains (reaching as high as 9,843 feet), to the spectacular grasslands and canyons surrounding the Snake River (reaching as low as 875 feet), and the vast watersheds, rangelands, and conifer forests in between.  There are ten Wild and Scenic Rivers, four Wilderness Areas, and one famous Hells Canyon National Recreation Area. 

The Forest is part of the Pacific Northwest Region of the Forest Service (an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture).  Our mission is to “sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the nation’s forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations.”
