Mount Vernon Riverfront North 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

Mount Vernon used this grant to build a 1,100 lineal foot multi-purpose riverfront trail that links to the city’s trails and Lions Park. Crews planted the shoreline with native plants. The North Trail serves as the backbone for further regional shoreline trails and provides a critical link between the city’s largest urban trail and the downtown promenade.
