Bighorn National Forest
Bighorn National Forest is a Vast Landscape
One of the oldest forest lands, protected by the government, is located in Northern Wyoming. Bighorn National Forest encompasses more than 1.1 million acres of land, along the Big Horn Mountains.
The forest is approximately eighty miles long and thirty miles wide and ranges in elevation from 5,500 feet to 13,175 feet.
The Big Horn River that flows along the forest's west side, provided the inspiration for explorers Lewis and Clark, who named the mountain range after the river.
Recreation enthusiasts have plenty of options for fun in this national forest. For starters, there are more than 1,500 miles of trails for hiking and backpacking, along the streams and lakes. Set a goal to reach one of the mountain peaks, for incredible views of the forest's hills and mountains.
Bring along your fishing pole for a relaxing day of fishing in the crystal-clear lakes. Plan ahead to make sure you have plenty of time in this magnificent national forest.
