Pine forest with numerous lakes. Pros: easy terrain, abundant lakes with nice campsites, very lightly used. Cons: ungodly numbers of mosquitoes, especially in the southern areas (I was there in June), so-so views. All-in-all a good place for easy day hikes or overnight backpacking. Wonderful if you like solitude. But bring bug spray and a head net!!
