Miller Peninsula – Jones Trust

Category Overview

State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.

Project Highlights

State Parks will use this grant to buy 21 acres to expand Miller Peninsula State Park, which is a mostly undeveloped park near Sequim in Clallam County. The 2,800-acre State Parks’ property on the north Olympic Peninsula has an extensive trail system that is popular with hikers, mountain bikers, horse riders, and wildlife viewers. The 21 acres, known as the Jones Trust property, is for sale and is next to the northwest corner of park’s long-term boundary. The land is forested with a quarter-mile of shoreline and a small stream in a ravine. It is one of the few places along the north side of Miller Peninsula where it might be possible to build access to the beach because much of the existing state park property has very high banks. State Parks will contribute $1,000 in donations of cash.
