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.
Snohomish County Centennial Trail Development: Phase 2 represents the construction of 4.5 miles of County-owned abandoned railroad right-of-way between the City of Lake Stevens and the City of Arlington. The trail will include a 10-foot paved pedestrian/bicycle trail and a separated 6-foot soft surface equestrian trail. Snohomish County has completed and manages 7 miles of the Centennial Trail from Snohomish to Lake Stevens. The health, recreational, environmental, and transportation benefits of non-motorized trails is well documented. Snohomish County has recognized those benefits and prioritized trail construction in its Comprehensive Parks and Recreation Plan and its Capital Finance Plan.
