Jim Kaemingk Sr. Trail Development

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

The City of Lynden will use this grant to develop the missing link in the downtown core of the citywide Jim Kaemingk Sr. Trail. The City will buy 1.84 acres and build about 1 mile of trail between Depot Road and Main Street along Fishtrap Creek. The trail will be used for non-motorized activities such as walking, biking, and jogging, and will link neighborhoods, schools, trails, and the downtown. Lynden will contribute more than $1 million.
