The Sawtooth Rivers to Peaks site spans from Hailey to Stanley, Idaho and includes more than one million acres across the Ketchum Ranger District and Sawtooth National Recreation Area.
This vast Forest complex is home to more than 1,000 high alpine lakes and the headwaters of four major Idaho rivers: the Salmon, South Fork of the Payette, Boise, and Big Wood. Dramatic mountain ranges tower above the forest landscape. The Sawtooth, Boulder, White Clouds, Pioneer, and Smokey Mountain ranges provide scenic landscapes in every direction, with more than 50 major peaks over 10,000 feet. The area offers an incredible diversity of wildlife habitat and recreational experiences.
For the next five years, the NFF will be working with the local community and partners to restore rivers and wetlands, improve the resilience of native forest and plant communities, maintain and improve recreational infrastructure, and foster visitor stewardship.
