Iron Horse/ John Wayne – Three Trestles

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 provides matching funds for a federal grant to repair trestles on the John Wayne Pioneer Trail. The western trestle is at Hall Creek at Olallie State Park. The eastern locations will bridge the Yakima River at the site of a previous structure. Three parcels will be acquired in conjunction with the development work.
