Roadtrippin': Trekking the Tongass National Forest

By  | 

KETCHIKAN, Alaska (KTUU) - It's the largest national forest in the country, featuring unique wildlife you'll find only in Alaska.

Through mountains, valleys, islands and lakes, the Tongass National Forest covers roughly 17 million acres of Southeast Alaska, including 450 miles of winding trails that spiderweb through the dense temperate rainforest of sitka spruce, yellow cedar and hemlock.

“Your opportunities for solitude and to be able to get out and recreate how you want and try to get that Alaska experience is there,” said Forest Service district developed recreation manager Brad Schumaker.
