Larry Scott Trail Final Phase

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 Jefferson County Public Works Department will use this grant to buy the remaining right-of-way needed and to develop the Larry Scott Trail from the Cape George Road area to the Four Corners area . The trail will be 10 feet wide crushed and compacted gravel surface that will accommodate multiple uses and be accessible to people with disabilities. A 4-foot-wide horse path will parallel the trail where conditions allow (very limited). A trailhead will be built at the south end of the trail corridor. The tralhead will include a main parking area with ten parking stalls, a secondary parking area for equestrian parking (horse trailers and tow vehicles), and a trailhead kiosk.
