Highpoint Trailhead Addition

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 will use this grant to construct an addition to the Highpoint Trailhead in West Tiger Mountain Natural Resources Conservation Area, located in King County. The proposed addition will create a new formal entry round-a-bout to the forest, 158 additional parking spaces (including 6 ADA spaces), a Trailhead Direct Shuttle stop/ school bus loading zone, picnic area, CXT, and info kiosks. New recreation connections will be created to connect to trails and public lands on both sides of I-90. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project will be safe and sustainable access to non-motorized trails.
