Abiquiu Area The Santa Fe National Forest around Abiquiu has scenic trails in a region that is more remote and less visited than other areas of the Forest.  Many of the trails were burned over and damaged by subsequent flooding in the 2010 South Fork Fire and again in the 2011 Las Conchas Fire.  Since then, most trails have been restored and reopened.  Many areas remain unaffected and offer great recreation opportunities.  A good map and orienteering skills are recommended for many of the lesser used trails that can become overgrown and hard to find and follow.

Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness: Shoshone The United States Congress designated the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness in 1978 and it now has a total of 943,648 acres. Spanning the Montana-Wyoming border on the Shoshone, Gallatin, and Custer National Forests, the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness is the juncture of two mountain ranges (Beartooth and Absaroka) with differing geologic types. The Absaroka Range (prounounced ab-ZORE-kuh, the Crow Indian word for crow) is of volcanic origin, while the Beartooth Range, named for a spike of rock resembling a bear's tooth, is granitic in formation.

Applegate River The Applegate River, a major tributary of the Rogue River, drains a large portion of the eastern Siskiyou Mountains. Its generally-northward course begins among the snowfields and springs along the summit of the Siskiyou Crest; waters on the far side of the Siskiyou Crest drain south into the Klamath River in California. The river's upper-elevation watershed lies entirely within the boundaries of the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest, where it is a generally steep-gradient, cold-water stream.
