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.
This project will construct 1.5 miles of non-motorized multi-use trail and parallel equestrian track to extend the Larry Scott Memorial Trail. The application includes funding to acquire the remaining land or easement needed to complete public ownership along segment 3 of the trail. When complete, the Larry Scott Memorial Trail will extend 8.5 miles from Port Townsend, southwest to Discovery Bay. This trail is a key component of the Olympic Discovery Trail, which links the Port Townsend ferry terminal to Port Angeles, and eventually the Pacific. The trail is popular with residents who commute via bicycle or foot, tourists, and local recreationists. The southern end of the trail near Discovery Bay will become a hub for local loop trails planned to serve Port Hadlock, Chimacum and Kala Point.
