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.
This project constructed a 22-foot wide concrete trail along the edge of the Skagit River that will be the centerpiece to the riverfront trail system in historic downtown Mount Vernon. The trail will extend 1800 feet south from the Division Bridge to Mount Vernon’s city center. Interpretive signs related to the the river will be placed along the trail. The project significantly increases public access to the shoreline and opportunities for recreation.
