     The Boise National Forest includes about 2,612,000 acres of National Forest lands located north and east of the city of Boise, Idaho.  Most of the land supports an evergreen forest that includes pure or mixed stands of ponderosa pine, grand fir, Douglas fir, Engelmann spruce, lodgepole pine and subalpine fir.

   The major river systems on the Boise National Forest are the Boise and Payette Rivers and the South and Middle Fork drainages of the Salmon River.The Forest contains large expanses of summer range for big game species like mule deer and Rocky Mountain elk. Trout are native to most streams and lakes. Oceangoing salmon and steelhead inhabit tributaries of the Salmon River.
