Payson National Forest


Payson National Forest

Payson National Forest was established as the Payson Forest Reserve by the General Land Office in Utah on August 3, 1901 with 86,400 acres, located near Nephi. After the transfer of federal forests to the U.S. Forest Service in 1905, it became a National Forest on March 4, 1907. On July 1, 1908 Payson and Vernon National Forests and part of Fillmore were combined to create Nebo National Forest. The lands presently exist in Uinta National Forest and contain the Mt. Nebo Wilderness.
