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.
The City of Port Angeles will use funding to construct a missing gap of the Olympic Discovery Trail along Hill Street. The new trail will replace a poorly signed, steep, and narrow roadside shoulder with an off-road path on a 6-7% ADA compliant grade up and along a forested marine bluff. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is hiking and biking.
