The Boise National Forest was established in 1908. It is located in southwestern Idaho, north and east of Boise. Payette National Forest borders it on the north, and Challis and Sawtooth national forests adjoin it to the east.The national forest is divided into two segments. The Middle Fork Salmon and South Fork Salmon rivers, the Middle Fork Payette River, and all three forks of the Boise River have their sources in the forest.Shortly after the discovery of gold north of Boise in 1862, numerous mining communities sprang up in the area. Logging remains an important use of the forest.The national forest is a popular recreation area, noted for its fishing and hunting, hiking, and rafting on the Middle Fork Salmon River. Bogus Basin Ski Resort is a winter-sports center, 16 miles north of Boise, which is where the forest headquarters are located.
