Paleto Forest is a forest south of Paleto Bay in Blaine County, which appears in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. The Great Ocean Hwy runs through the forest and the Aerial Tramway, giving access to the peak of Mount Chiliad, can be found in the forest. The forest provides good hunting for locals, including Cletus Ewing, while the trees provide jobs at Paleto Forest Sawmill. The area is controlled by the Ballas, a gang from Los Santos, who grow cannabis in the forest.
