About Us - Pierce County Back Country Horsemen of Washington
Our Pierce County Back Country Horsemen volunteers spend quality time working with friends and family members and maintaining trails on public lands. We donate our trail work efforts to local and federal land managing agencies. Since 1995, BCHA members contributed a value equal to $139.86 million in volunteer hours all across America.
We invest in active participation by young leaders in the wise and sustainable use of wilderness and back country resources. We coordinate with conservation corps and youth groups, United States Forest Service, National Park Service, and Bureau of Land Management to ensure tomorrow's leaders have outdoor and wilderness experiences. As youth groups work with us and our partners, they learn about themselves and about stewardship of our most treasured resources. BCHA, its youth partners, and other volunteers leverage funds many times over in delivering projects to clear and maintain trails.
Are you a hiker, biker, or horseback rider who gets out and enjoys trails? We do much of the work that goes unseen to clear and preserve the safety and continued enjoyment of your outdoor experience. Much of our work involvea both "horsepower" and human power. The majority of our pack trips with horses, mules and ATVs assist trail crews get food, camping gear, and trail maintenance equipment into areas where larger and heavier four-wheeled vehicles cannot go. We help two-footed trail workers get more done by packing in what they need. Please, join us if you can.
