Modoc National Forest

These ecosystems with their rich habitat create abundant opportunities for recreation around water, wildlife viewing, fishing and hunting. A network of scenic drives provide local communities and growing urban areas easy access to a rich heritage of land use and culture, from Native Americans to present day ranching. In concert with communities, the forest provides learning opportunities that invite visitors to stay, enjoy, and care for the forest in ways that maintain this remote, quiet character.Use our web site to help you plan your visit to the Forest.
