Colville Mountain Trailhead Land Acquisition

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

The City of Colville will use this grant to buy 38.37 acres for a trailhead in the Colville Mountain Recreation Area in Stevens County. There is no permanent, legal access to the recreation area and its trail system. The land will connect city right-of-way to the current trail system. Colville will contribute $34,098 in cash, staff labor, and donated labor.
