McLane Creek Nature Trails Renovation

Category Overview

The State Lands Development and Renovation category provides funding to two state agencies to repair, renovate, and develop outdoor recreation facilities on existing recreation lands. As the popularity of outdoor recreation increases in our state, these grants help address overcrowding, ensure our outdoor amenities are safe for public use, improve visitor experience, and allow more people to enjoy our great outdoors.

Project Highlights

The Department of Natural Resources used this grant to perform bridge and trail development at McLane Creek Nature trails, located in Capitol State Forest. Development included the replacement of two wooden bridges, the repair and replacement of boardwalks along with limited trail reconstruction. The primary recreation activity provided by the project was improved nature trail access and wildlife viewing opportunities.
