    Anyone tried Capitol Forest near Olympia, WA?

    Hi, new to this forum. Just wondering if anyone has checked out the Black Hills near Olympia, WA located on state land called Capitol Forest? It's now a big draw for weekend ATV's and motorcycles. The land appears to have been logged off several times since the turn of the century. From what I can determine there where logging camps and a small railroad line in use at one time. Anyone interested or have information?

    Always interested. Don't know much about that area though. I have some old maps of Olympia but that area wasn't included.

    Waddell Creek is great for fine gold and a rare picker in the bunch.

    There are a couple rock hounding spot on Capital peek itself, but I don't have a map handy for the rock locations. DNR library might be of help to you.

    The parking areas might be okay, but a lot of the park is red clay. The clay is very slimey when wet. You won't find much along the trails.
