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 this grant to build Race Street Trail, a multiuse trail that connects Olympic Discovery Trail to the Olympic National Park Visitor and Back Country Information Center. The 0.65-mile trail segment will bisect Port Angeles in a north-south direction and will connect two major parks-Civic Field and Erickson Park. The primary recreation opportunities provided by this project are walking, jogging and bicycling.
