Chelatchie Prairie Railroad Trail

Category Overview

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.

Project Highlights

Clark County used this grant to develop one mile of the Chelatchie Prairie Railroad Trail beginning at Battle Ground Lake State Park. The trail, an important recreation resource in the county, ultimately will extend 33 miles from Vancouver in southwest Clark County to Chelatchie Prairie in the northeast.
