Forest to Sky Trail Corridor II

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

Bainbridge Island Metro Parks used grant funds to acquire 7.56 acres of property for future development of a trail corridor that links three existing park lands: The Grand Forest, Meigs Park and Battle Point Park. The property is located on Bainbridge Island in Kitsap County. The acquisition included approximately 7.56 acres of upland forest, that once developed will provide a non-motorized trail link. The BIMPRD retained the existing homesite, which is not included as part of the RCO funded acquisition. Future use of the property is primarily for passive recreation as a non-motorized trail.
