Roslyn to Teanaway Regional Trail System Acq.

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 Roslyn will use this grant to buy 60 acres of forest to complete trails from Roslyn to the Teanaway Community Forest, in Kittitas County. These trails, which are for non-motorized uses, will increase access to public lands and complete a regional trail network from the Yakima River valley to Leavenworth. Roslyn is surrounded by thousands of acres of public lands with trails throughout. The Roslyn-to-Teanaway project builds upon the vision to connect recreation between the surrounding communities and public lands. Interruption in public ownership disconnects Roslyn’s trail network and surrounding trail systems including the Coal Mines Trail, Suncadia trail system, Washington State horse park trails, and the John Wayne Pioneer Trail, from the regional trails found on The Nature Conservancy lands and in the Teanaway Community Forest. Roslyn will contribute $356,738 in cash and a local grant.
