A big thank you to volunteers at our 11th Annual Great Gravel Pack-in last weekend

Powered by a mutual love of recreation in Capitol State Forest near Olympia, dedicated volunteers came together to make an important contribution to the 100,000-acre forest’s trails. In partnership with the Back Country Horsemen of Washington, Washington ATV Association, and Evergreen Sportsmen’s Club, volunteers on foot, horseback, and all-terrain vehicle, reinforced one-fourth mile of trail on the Campground trail and one mile of Waddell Basin West trail with gravel.

For more than ten years, Great Gravel Pack-in volunteers have reinforced more than 12 miles of trail in Capitol State Forest. This year they moved 30 yards of gravel (75,000 pounds).

Volunteers with the Back Country Horsemen of Washington dedicated the event to Daniel Lyon, a firefighter severely burned in the 2015 Twisp River Fire, and the firefighters who bravely work to protect our forests from wildfire.
