      Just a short drive from Olympia, Capitol State Forest has trailheads, day-use areas, and campgrounds with access to the forest's hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and off-road vehicle riding trail systems. From horseback riding at Mima Falls, to mountain biking and off-road-vehicle riding at Rock Candy, Capitol State Forest provides a variety of recreational opportunities. Horseback riding-oriented campgrounds, like the Margaret McKenny, offer corals and hitching posts, while off-road vehicle-oriented campgrounds, like the Middle Waddell, provide access to the forest's motorized trail system. Visitors should follow these rules to keep their trips safe and fun.

      To access recreation sites on DNR-managed land with your vehicle, you'll need a Discover Pass, your ticket to Washington's great outdoors.

      Campsites available first come, first served so there's no need to make a reservation.
      Capitol Forest campgrounds are closed Dec. 1 - April 30 for the winter season.
      Limit stay to 7 days per year. Camp only in designated campgrounds

      Mountain bikers may bring unleashed dogs controlled by voice command.

      NOTE: Off-road motorcycles and horseback riders can enjoy Capitol State Forest trails from May 1 to November 30 only.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      eBikes Allowed: Yes
      Shuttleable: YES
