National Forest Foundation

Our Mission: Engage Americans in promoting the health and public enjoyment of our National Forests.

Our National Forests and Grasslands are at the core of America’s natural riches, and yet, today these treasures are threatened by unprecedented challenges.

In 2011, the White Mountain National Forest was severely damaged by Hurricane Irene.  In response, we designated the Whites a Treasured Landscape  and have conducted miles of trail restorationa and bridge reconstruction on trails like the Avalon Trail, Davis Path, Nancy Ponds Trail, Greeley Ponds trail, 19 Mile Brook Trail, Livermore Rd, Lost Pond Trail, and the Tuckerman Ravine Trail.  

Looking forward, we are continuing to expand access to sustainable recreation on the White Mountain National Forest by uniting trail maintainers for a holistic, collaborative approach to trial maintenance on the Whites and conducting crucial restoration work at Sabbaday Falls, Glen Ellis Falls, on the Crawford Path, and in Tuckerman Ravine.

This August, for the first time ever, we are working in conjunction with Northeast Mountaineering to host the first annual for the Forest on August 19th!  Join us for a day of hiking in the WHite Mountains and an after-party in support of our stewardship efforts in the White Mountains!  For more information visit!
