Snohomish Riverfront Trail

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

Design, permits, and development of an asphalt non-motorized trail with associated site preparation, signage, site furnishings, storm drainage, parking, erosion control, landscaping, viewpoints, and water access. There is pressing need to provide a safe, scenic route through town, and the riverfront is the natural choice. This project will include engineering and construction of the trail and related development, such as parking, paving, signage, utility relocation, site furnishings, landscaping, fishing and water access, viewpoints, and public transit connection. The accessible trail will connect community facilities, including Cady Park, Kla-Ha-Ya Park, public library, future Pilchuck Recreational area, city boat launch, and Snohomish County’s Centennial Trail system that connects to both King and Skagit Counties.
