Location Guides

The sheer number of photogenic places to be found in the Shawnee National Forest can be overwhelming. Don't let not being familiar with, or not being able to decide on a location keep you from getting out and capturing great photos. We have curated a must-see list of locations in the area that are perfect for getting out and capturing great shots. We share a few photos of the locations as inspiration and give you all the information you need to go out and do the rest. You can find trail access information as well as details on upcoming photo walks in those locations, where members from the community get together to share tips and tricks for capturing the perfect shots. As you capture your photos, share them with the community on the Exploremore Registry Facebook page.

Exploremore° Events

Join the rest of the Exploremore° Community at: meet ups, work shops, and photo walks around beautiful SNF, Ferne Clyffe, Crab Orchard, and the surrounding wilderness areas for a unique, community outdoor experience.
