Yacolt Burn

State Forest - Washington

The Yacolt Burn State Forest is named for the dozens of wildfires that ravaged Clark, Cowlitz and Skamania counties in southwest Washington during September 1902. With no organized system for fighting wildfires, the fires spread across nearly 239,000 acres and caused 38 deaths and widespread property losses. In response, the Washington Legislature established a state fire warden the following year. In 1908, private landowners formed the Washington Fire Protection Association and funded a system of fire wardens and a program of fire prevention on private lands. The Yacolt Burn State Forest is open year-round for hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking. Whether you're looking to ride off-road-vehicles from the Jones Creek Trailhead, take a hike from the Grouse Vista Trailhead, mountain bike from the Larch Mountain Trailhead, or camp at the equestrian-oriented Rock Creek Campground, Yacolt Burn State Forest has something for everyone.
