North Bend Tanner Trail – Rails to Trails

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

The City of North Bend will use this grant to buy 3.5 acres of abandoned railroad right-of-way and develop about .5 mile of Tanner Trail. The trail will connect downtown North Bend and multiple neighborhoods with some of the city’s most visited parks and recreational facilities such as Snoqualmie Valley Trail, Torguson Park, William H. Taylor Park (Train Depot), Si View Community Park, and the future City Hall Park. The local parks district, Si View Metropolitan Parks District, supports this project and has identified it as a priority project. North Bend will contribute $399,097 in cash and voter-approved bonds.
