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 City of Wenatchee will use this grant to build two trailheads and a 4.1-mile trail connecting them. The Horse Lake Trailhead will include parking, signs, benches, landscaping and a vault toilet. The Day Road Trailhead will include signage, an electronic gate, gravel and native vegetation. The Foothills Trail system provides access to recreation for 54,000 residents and millions of tourists that frequent the region.
