Lewis River Trail

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 involves the acquisition of a 1.7 mile (77 acres) trail corridor on the north side of the East Fork Lewis River in central Clark County. The trail corridor connects Daybreak and Lewisville Regional Parks, which provide off-street parking, restrooms, picnic facilities, shelters, play equipment, and many other amenities. In addition, this project is a key link within an existing eight mile (1,000 acres) greenway system on the lower East Fork Lewis River. The East Fork Lewis is Clark County’s largest free-flowing river and future trail improvements will provide a variety of views and river access opportunities, while being sensitive to habitat values. The trail has a county-wide service area, with a population base of over 300,000 people.
