Willapa Hills Trail- Chehalis to Adna

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

State Parks used the grant to construct 13 miles of trail from Adna to just west of Rainbow Falls State Park near the Dryad Bridge, a trailhead at Chehalis, Ceres Hill, and Meskill Road east of Rainbow Falls State Park. The trail was surfaced with compacted gravel.
