West Fork Teanaway Trailhead

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 (DNR) will use this grant to develop a trailhead in the Teanaway Community Forest, located on the north side of the West Fork Teanaway Road adjacent to the West Fork trail system. Development will include a minimum of 65 parking spaces, a restroom facility, and two informational kiosks. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project is access to hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian use.
