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.
This acquisition is a key link in a greenway/trails system crossing the north Kitsap peninsula from Hood Canal to Puget Sound. The project connects county parks at Hood Canal and Buck Lake through a forested trail system with viewing access to beaver ponds. Conservation easements will protect water quality and salmon habitat on the site.
