Raging River SF – Trail System Dev. Final Phase

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 build the final 10 miles of a 45-mile trail network in Raging River State Forest, about 20 miles east of Seattle. The trail is for non-motorized uses, such as hiking, bicycling, and riding horses. The proposed new trails will give visitors a safer alternative to using service roads, develop missing trail links, provide downhill mountain biking trails, and provide more trail access mostly for equestrian and hiking use. The Department of Natural Resources will contribute $269,000 in a state appropriation, staff labor, a grant from RCO’s Nonhighway and Off-road Vehicle Activities program, and donated labor.
