The Klickitat Trail – Bridging the Final Gap

Category Overview

State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.

Project Highlights

The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commssion will use this grant to construct two bridges on the Klickitat Trail: a 20-foot long bridge over Snyder Creek and a 150-foot long bridge over the Klickitat River. The project will establish full continuity for the 31 mile Klickitat Trail located in the Columbia River Gorge in south central Washington by eliminating the last physical gaps. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is non-motorized trail use.
