Cape Disappointment Multi-Use Trail Extension

Category Overview

State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.

Project Highlights

State Parks used this grant to construct approximately one-half mile of paved non-motorized trail to link North Head Lighthouse with the existing Discovery Trail at Cape Disappointment State Park. State Parks also paved, reconfigured and added a restroom and interpretive kiosk at the North Head parking lot. The project included landsacaping and signage, and utilities to serve the restroom. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project is non-motorized trail use.
