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.
The project is for the acquisition of 9.24 acres of land, the construction of a new trailhead and 1/2 mile of trail for the Green River Regional Trail including, picnic shelter/restroom, 37 car parking lot, accessible fishing area, and native plant landscaping/buffer/greenbelt. The accessible trail will allow fishing close to the river. Currently slopes of 1.5:1 make bank fishing inaccessible. This will be the only accessible fishing area on the Green River. The stretch of the greenbelt is very open and this project will establish a native plant greenbelt along the trail and river corridor to buffer the adjacent industrial area. The Boeing Company is donating nearly $1.8 million in property towards this project.
