Shoshone National Forest
These announcement details are specific to the Shoshone National Forest’s Timber Program
The Forest:
Shoshone consists of five Ranger Districts: Wind River located in Dubois, WY and Washakie located in Lander, WY, creating the “South Zone” of the
Forest and then there is the Clarks Fork, Wapiti and Greybull Ranger Districts which are consolidated into the “North Zone” and is headquartered in
Cody, Wyoming. (click) http://www.fs.fed.us/r2/shoshone/ for a complete description. The Shoshone National Forest was established in
1891 as a part of the Yellowstone Timberland Reserve. The forest is an integral part of the 10 million acre Greater Yellowstone Area which is
centered in Yellowstone National Park. The Shoshone consists of 2,470,430 acres of varied terrain ranging from sagebrush flats to rugged mountain
peaks. Over one half of the forest is designated wilderness. With Yellowstone National Park on its western border, the Shoshone encompasses an
area from the Montana state line south to Lander, Wyoming, and includes portions of the Absaroka, Wind River, and Beartooth mountain ranges.
The western boundary of the forest to south of Yellowstone is the crest of the Continental Divide. Elevations on the Shoshone ranges from 4,600 feet
at the south of the spectacular Clarks Fork Canyon, to 13,804 feet on Gannett Peak, Wyoming's highest point.
Recreation:
Shoshone offers high adventure and solitude in the back country and developed campgrounds along travel corridors. Shoshone is known for
hunting, fishing, ice and rock climbing, mountaineering, whitewater rafting, cross-country skiing, dog sledding, hiking, horseback riding and
packing, and internationally recognized trails such as the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, and 262 miles of snowmobile trails. The
Shoshone is the eastern gateway to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, which draw nearly 3 million visitors annually. Also known for its
wildlife, Shoshone NF is also home to about 335 native wildlife species, the Shoshone provides habitat for grizzly and black bears, gray wolves, deer,
elk, moose, pronghorn, bison, Yellowstone cutthroat trout, and a host of smaller animals and birds ranging from pikas, coyotes, and river otters to
Clark’s nutcrackers, blue grouse, and peregrine falcons. The Shoshone is home to more wild bighorn sheep than any other forest in the National
Forest System. A year-round opportunity for wildlife watching is one of the reasons that more than half a million people visit the Shoshone every
year.
