5 of the best National Forests in the USA.

1. Cibola National Forest - New Mexico Cibola National Forest is a nearly 1.5 million-acre wonder in New Mexico and one of the best national forests in America. The region is home to a diverse variety of natural habitats and wildlife. Black bears, cougars, prairie dogs, wild turkeys, and more all roam here. Head to the Timber Peak Trail for a moderate hike with panoramic views of the park at its end.
2. Sierra National Forest - California Sierra National Forest is a vast wilderness in the mountains of Sierra Nevada. Its oak-covered hills are a strikingly beautiful alpine landscape that must be seen to be believed. The expansive scenes here are the perfect backdrop for a hike at one of the park's many trails. But other fun things like ATVing, snowshoeing, and fishing are also on the table.
3. Gifford Pinchot National Forest - Washington Grassy hillsides, snowy mountaintops, and even volcanic peaks grace the land that makes up one of Washington state’s best national forests. Mount St. Helens is the main attraction, a volcano that erupted in 1980. The peak itself is an incredible backdrop for photos and is the centerpiece of several hiking trails. Make sure you take a walk along the Birth of a Lake Trail to see Coldwater Lake, formed by its fateful eruption from years past.
4. Tongass National Forest - Alaska Tongass and the coastal terrain that makes it up is the world’s largest temperate rainforest. Its breathtaking landscape is the perfect place to enjoy a scenic hike or spot all kinds of local wildlife. Bear watching is a popular thing to do here, thanks to the park’s numerous salmon spawning streams. Check out Fish Creek, Anan Creek, Pack Creek, or Steep Creek in June or July. Or charter a whale-watching boat to spot humpback whales in their natural habitat in April or May.
5. White Mountain National Forest - New Hampshire Fall foliage lovers will want to add White Mountain National Forest to their future trip plans. From late September to mid-October, the park’s 47,000 acres of mountain landscape is colored in hues of brilliant autumn colors, making this one of the best national forests in the U.S. for a scenic hike. Start with the Welch-Dickey Trail Loop for a short but comprehensive hike that covers the best parts of the park. Or head to Mount Moosilauke and South Peak Loop for a challenge to ascend the highest point in White Mountain.
