Trolley Trail Acquisition

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 Trolley Trail Acquisition is just over one linear mile (5377.28 feet) by one-hundred feet of hard-packed trail, 12.34 acres, that was the Washington Water Power/Medical Lake Railroad bed. The subject property includes wooded areas, and is adjacent to a 200+ wooded tract of State land. The trail is currently used by hikers, running groups, mountain bikers and equestrians. No development is desired by the general public. The subject property, along with two future donations, will connect with the Fish Lake Trail and Centennial Trail.
