About The Tongass National Forest
The Tongass National Forest covers most of Southeast Alaska, surrounding the famous Inside Passage, and is the largest U.S. National Forest at 16.7 million acres. Most of its area is temperate rain forest and is remote enough to be home to many species of endangered and rare flora and fauna. The Tongass, which is managed by the United States Forest Service, encompasses islands of the Alexander Archipelago, fjords and glaciers, and peaks of the Coast Mountains. Sitka, and most of Baranof Island, is within the limits of the Tongass National Forest.
