Tiger Summit Trailhead Renovation and Addition

Category Overview

The State Lands Development and Renovation category provides funding to two state agencies to repair, renovate, and develop outdoor recreation facilities on existing recreation lands. As the popularity of outdoor recreation increases in our state, these grants help address overcrowding, ensure our outdoor amenities are safe for public use, improve visitor experience, and allow more people to enjoy our great outdoors.

Project Highlights

The Department of Natural Resources will use this grant to renovate and construct an addition to Tiger Summit Trailhead, in Tiger Mountain State Forest, located in King County. The proposed improvements will increase the parking capacity by providing 100 car parking spaces and a designated equestrian parking area with space for 6 horse trailers. Additional development will include a new CXT, picnic areas, information kiosks, equestrian mounting ramp, and shuttle stop, and will improve access to the trail system, including an accessible interpretive loop, and to a new viewpoint shelter with views of Mt. Rainier and the Cascades. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project will be safe and sustainable access to non-motorized trails.
