Green River Trail Dev., Ph. 1

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

Trail is part of a planned 55-mile loop running through Seattle, Tukwila, Kent, Auburn, Flaming Geyser State Park, Black Diamond, Maple Valley, and Renton.
