Susie Stephens Trail Phase 2

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 Town of Winthrop will use this grant to construct approximately 0.6 mile of trail in the second phase of development of the Susie Stephens Trail. This phase includes landscape and amenity improvemets to phase one development, extending the trail from Norfolk Road south towards SR 20, and developing a portion of a downtown “Riverwalk” section along the Methow River. The primary outdoor recreation opportunity provided is walking and bicycling.
