Interurban Trail & Trailhead

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

This project implemented the first phase of Edgewood’s segment of the regional Interurban Trail. A 0.83-mile trail which extended from the Edgewood city limits near Military Road (connecting the trail to the City of Milton’s trail segment) to 114th Avenue East and a trailhead park were constructed and completed. In addition, wetland and habitat enhancements, interpretive signage and display, a restroom, picnic shelters, lighting, benches and parking have been installed.
