Lake to Sound Trail Development, Segment A

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

King County DNR and Parks will use this grant to construct a 1.2-mile-long segment (Segment A) of the Lake to Sound Trail, the second of six phases. Segment A runs from the Green River Trail near Fort Dent Park in Tukwila through the Black River Riparian Protection Forest to Naches Avenue SW in Renton. King County DNR and Parks will construct a 12-foot-wide paved, non-motorized, shared use path and a new 110-foot-long pedestrian and bicycle bridge across the Black River. This segment will complete a 16-mile-long trail from the south end of Lake Washington to Puget Sound, linking the cities of Renton, Tukwila, SeaTac, Burien and Des Moines and connecting to four existing regional trails. The primary recreation opportunity provided by the project will be non-motorized, multi-use trail.
