Salt Lake Ranger District

The mountainous Salt Lake Ranger District is the classic "urban" forest where more than a million people reside in the adjacent Salt Lake, Davis and Tooele Counties. The annual snow pack is both an important source of water for local communities and a draw for alpine skiers worldwide seeking the "Greatest Snow on Earth." The District's proximity, scenic beauty, and year-round recreation opportunities means that it is a beloved and busy place. An ongoing challenge for the District is to carefully balance the natural resource capabilities with public needs and desires. The public, in turn, plays a crucial role in keeping the District a vibrant place to visit and play.
