See Your Somewhere

This year's theme invites Americans to find their somewhere on our National Forests and Grasslands. Whether it's a new trail in your backyard forest, or a new destination across the country, there are endless ways to explore our incredible public lands. Anytime you visit your National Forest, be sure to #RecreateResponsibly to ensure these places stay healthy for future generations.

National Forests and Grasslands provide Americans with 193 million spectacular acres of wildlands.

  • More than 9,000 miles of scenic byways to drive
  • Almost 150,000 miles of trails to hike
  • More than 4,400 miles of wild and scenic rivers to float
  • At least 5,100 campgrounds in which to pitch our tents
  • And 328 natural pools to swim in

Managed by the USDA Forest Service, our National Forests and Grasslands host more than 170 million visits each year. Visitor spending pumps $13.5 billion into our economy annually, sustaining nearly 223,000 jobs in gateway communities.

These lands are the foundation of America’s outdoor recreation heritage and sustain our way of life. They provide water to millions Americans in thousands of communities, clean our air, store carbon, and provide timber, minerals, oil and gas and other resources for industry and communities.
