Trails grants help communities and recreation areas fund the creation and improvement of trails for walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. These grants help make communities more livable, create regional trails systems, and open up beautiful outdoor spaces for people to enjoy. WWRP is the largest source of trail support in the state of Washington.
The project constructed 1.2 miles of 10-foot wide paved multipurpose non-motorized recreational trail on County-owned abandoned railroad right-of-way from the existing Centennial Trail northward to the City of Arlington. This trail segment begins at the northernmost trailhead of the existing trail (67th NE and 152nd NE), winds its way through sparcely developed forested property, across a bridge over Olav Strand Creek including an oversized culvert to accommodate fish passage, and down to 67th NE and 168th St NE where it connects with the City of Arlington’s portion of the trail. This adds to the 17 miles of existing Centennial Trail, providing a critical and safe connection to Arlington.
