The Caribou National Forest was created in 1907 by President Theodore Roosevelt. Recently the administration was merged with the Targhee National Forest. Combined, the two forests now cover more than 2.8 million acres in southeastern and eastern Idaho, with small portions in Utah and Wyoming. They include areas of semi-desert, timbered highlands, peaks over 10,000 feet, streams, lakes, waterfalls, rivers, and wilderness areas. The Targhee National Forest has the first National Recreation Water Trail established by the Forest Service, a five-mile float on calm water where many kinds of wildlife can be seen.
