Once known as the Columbia National Forest, the 1.3 million acres of Washington forestland was renamed after Gifford Pinchot in 1949. Stretching from Mount Rainier south to the Columbia River, the Gifford Pinchot National Forest is a fitting tribute to one of the first visionary leaders known for conservation ethic. Serving as the first chief of the U.S. Forest Service, Pinchot was praised for its establishment, development and management.
