William O. Douglas Trail Connections
- Funded in 2007
Yakima will use this grant to complete the William O. Douglas Trail by acquiring five missing links (four parcels and one trail easement totaling 4.5 linear miles). The William O. Douglas Trail is a 75-mile trail that runs through Yakima and connects to Mount Rainier National Park. The trail is 90 percent complete. In addition to purchasing land, Yakima will construct a .8-mile pedestrian pathway separated from Sixth Avenue and a short bike-pedestrian pathway across Yakima's historic Naches River trolley bridge, giving trail users access to the William O. Douglas hill climb and to the north bank of the Naches River. Yakima will contribute $919,712 in a state grant, labor, and donated labor.
