We invite you to participate in a unique organized wagon train experience for individuals and families. Ride and sojourn through forests, desert, prairies, ranches, alongside rivers and lakes. John Wayne Pioneer Wagons and Riders Association is a non- profit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting the historic John Wayne Pioneer Trail in Washington state. The trail is over 200 miles and follows the route of the former Milwaukee railroad, running east/west across WA State. Saddle up your horse, hitch up your team, ride your bicycle or walk. Cross over train trestles and forge through tunnels, feel the excitement of the day’s activities. Ride out on your own or with a group. Towns welcome us, historic clubs, church members, and 4-H clubs provide us with tasty home cooked meals and desserts in exchange for a donation to their group. Enjoy live entertainment, cowboy poetry, guitar pickin’, comedy skits, riding in a parade, campfires, and many evenings visiting with old and new friends or just relaxing at your campsite. Our 31st annual ride starts May 18th in Easton and ends June 3rd in Tekoa, WA. Come for the entire two weeks or just a few days. For more information or to register for the ride contact Jay Adams, 253-370-8325, or Dar Brady at 509-899-1066. www.jwpwr.org
