East Tiger Mtn Trail System Development- Phase 2

Category Overview

The State Lands Development and Renovation category provides funding to two state agencies to repair, renovate, and develop outdoor recreation facilities on existing recreation lands. As the popularity of outdoor recreation increases in our state, these grants help address overcrowding, ensure our outdoor amenities are safe for public use, improve visitor experience, and allow more people to enjoy our great outdoors.

Project Highlights

The Department of Natural Resources used this grant to develop two new trails within the east Tiger Mountain State Forest, located approximately 35 miles east of the Seattle area. Development included the design and construction of two new trails and 3 trail bridges. These new trails provide linkages within the existing trail system, and give users a safer alternative than using existing service roads, while also connecting the Tiger Summit Trail directly to the East Tiger Summit Viewpoint. The primary outdoor recreational opportunity provided by this project is safe and sustainable trails for hikers and mountain bike users.
