The Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest (TCEF), established in 1961, is dominated by lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia) forest types. The most common habitat type found on the Experimental Forest is subalpine fir/grouse whortleberry (Abies lasiocarpa/Vaccinium scoparium). The subalpine forests of the TCEF are mixed-age stands that reflect the area's fire history.
Elevation of the TCEF ranges from about 6,000 to 8,000 feet, and freezing temperatures are possible in any month of the year.
