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.
Washington State Parks will use this grant to improve 12 miles of the popular Spokane River Centennial Trail from the Idaho border west to Islands Trailhead. The original trail surface was paved in the early 1990’s and has reached the end of its useful life. This project will provide a full asphalt overlay to re-establish the smooth and safe surface needed for the array of wheeled, pedestrian, and ADA uses taking advantage of this wonderful community resource. Additional project components include lane painting/striping, new kiosks with way finding maps, mile markers, bollards, and bike repair stations. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is non-motorized trail use.
