Rolling hills, back-country trails, and rural crossroad communities make this small but beautiful forest a favorite! Forest managers work with the public to develop a shared vision of how this 202,000 acre Forest should be managed. 

USDA strive to provide outstanding stewardship by restoring, maintaining, and interpreting our public's cultural and natural resources. USDA offer high quality, resilient and rare ecosystems that provide diverse outdoor recreational experiences.
