Sawtooth National Forest Guide

If you are yearning for some solitude, the beautiful Sawtooth National Forest encompasses over 750,000 acres of wilderness in the southern part of Idaho and stretches further into nearby Utah. The massive forest requires six offices in the areas of Jerome, Burley, Fairfield, Ketchum, and Stanley and one in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. The picturesque scenery of this forest features majestic mountain ranges and stunning landscapes of unspoiled wilderness. It's only two and a half hours from the state capitol, Boise, in a region lovingly referred to as Sun Valley. There is a small airport near Ketchum, but most visitors will fly into Boise. The proximity to Utah and Wyoming provides convenient access to parks in those areas as well.
