Ocean Shores High Dune 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

The City of Ocean Shores will use this grant to develop the first paved trail in the high dunes between Damon Road and Pacific Avenue. The City will pave a 1.7-mile trail, build a trailhead, install signs and kiosk, remove non-native vegetation, and restore dunes. The trail will offer a variety of educational kiosks, signs, sculptures, benches, and picnic areas. Working with the Washington Department of Ecology, the City will remove invasive species and reintroduce native plants to the dunes. Ocean Shores will contribute $372,316 in cash, staff labor, and donations of labor.
