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.
State Parks will use this grant to improve 12 miles of the Spokane River Centennial Trail from the Idaho border west. The trail was paved in the early 1990s and has reached the end of its useful life. State Parks will repave the trail segment, paint lanes, and install kiosks with maps, mile markers, bollards, and bike repair stations. The Centennial Trail receives more than 1.5 million visits a year. State Parks will contribute $210,000.
