The Shawnee National Forest is the largest public forested area and the only National Forest in the State of Illinois. It provides open space that is available for public access and many recreational opportunities. The Forest provides scenic landscapes, fresh air, natural beauty, quiet, peaceful and restful settings, interesting historic sites, educational and research opportunities, and many other attractions. Recreation opportunities are a major attraction for tourism and enhance the local economy of southern Illinois. Unique opportunities provided by the Forest include public big-game hunting, long distance pedestrian/equestrian trails (i.e. River-to-River Trail), orienteering, bird watching, rock-climbing/rappelling, viewing scenic natural features, beach recreation and two National Scenic Byways (Ohio River and Great River Road). The Shawnee National Forest provides congressionally designated wilderness, candidate wild and scenic rivers and roadless areas, with the largest acreages of wilderness and roadless areas in Illinois.
