North Bend Community Connection

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 will use this grant to design and develop 4 miles of trail and 14 small trail bridges that will connect the community of North Bend to the Raging State Forest Trail system, located in King county. This trail will link the Tennant Trailhead Park to Snoqualmie Point Park with the Raging River State Forest Trail system. The route will connect the City of North Bend improving their access to eight soft surface trail systems, with over 140 combined trail miles. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this grant will be a sustainable trail for mountain biking, gravel biking, trail running and walking.
