This area is host to the granitic erratics and She Bear, the tallest granite bloc found so far. The land is DNR and the roads can be confusing so be patient trying to find the boulders but with help form Google Earth GPS ordinates should be provided. Also, please purchase a discover pass to keep funding for the roads, bathrooms, ect. **If you plan to clip bolts at little si you'll need one anyway.**

Getting There 

From Olympia take Hwy 101 North and then continue on Hwy 8 West. Look for the Rock Candy Mountain Entrance to Capitol forest and you will then be on the gravel road B LINE. Take the first left onto B8000 and the boulders are located off of this road and it's spurs.

Can anyone give any pointers as to where the boulders are located along B8000? Have explored it pretty thoroughly on two occasions and can't seem to locate any spots. Thanks!
