Cushman 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

This project is located in the northwest portion of Pierce County, across the Narrows Bridge into the Gig Harbor/Peninsula area. Pierce County in partnership with the City of Gig Harbor would like to receive a grant to extend the existing 16′ wide asphalt non -motorized trail through the City of Gig Harbor and portions of the County. The existing and proposed trail will be constructed on the Tacoma Public Utilities Right of Way where we have a renewable 20 year lease.
