Raging River St. Forest Trail System Dev.- Phase 2

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 Washington State Department of Natural Resources completed approximately 10 miles of new trail construction within the Raging River State Forest to enhance the trail system for non-motorized use, completing Phase 2 overall trail system development. Trail development included completion of four new trail segments: Raging Tiger Trail (3.0 miles in length), Physical Therapy Trail (upper/middle/lower segments 1.70 miles length), Canyon Creek Trail (2.40 miles in length), and Lower Return Policy Trail (2.50 miles in length). New trail development required installation of 5 new trail bridges in order to provide safe recreation access over regulated streams, with trail bridge installations completed on Raging Tiger Trail (2 bridges), Physical Therapy Trail (1 bridge), and Lower Return Policy Trail (2 bridges). New trail segments developed with this grant award were completed in phases during the project, with new trail segments opening as early as 2020 and all trails open by 2022.
