Property Adjacent to National Forests

I have a lot of Folks that ask me to find them properties that are “against the National Forest or BLM Land”. I’d like to take a minute & describe a little bit of what I know about this.

In North Idaho, no matter where you are, you’re always close to a national Forest of some kind, typically within minutes of it in one direction or another. Getting to it is a matter of riding a motorcycle, an ATV, truck, car, or just walking. 86% of this State is National Forest or BLM land…so there’s no shortage.

That being said, there are 2 kinds properties that are adjacent to National Forest lands, and I’ll describe them here.

If you buy a ten acre parcel that is contiguous to NFS lands, the main question is “are there also a bunch of other 10 acre parcels next to mine that are also contiguous to the NFS lands”? If there are, than you will have a bunch of neighbors who all view the NFS lands as their own personal backyard, making that area of the National Forest crowded with neighbors. On the other hand, if the parcels close to yours are larger parcels, than your chances of having the forest behind your house packed with people goes way down. It’s all about how many other parcels border the NFS lands, if it’s just a few, great, if it’s a bunch, the NFS land doesn’t really lend any, or much value.

On accessing (private) properties that are within the National Forest, if a open National Forest service road passes through the property, you have a right to use that road to access your property. If the road that accesses your property is a closed National Forest Service road, you can generally get a permit to use that road exclusively for your access to your property, typically it will cost $100-150.00 a year for the permit, and you want to make SURE that it’s paid on time, by the end of the year, every year.
