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

The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission used this grant to surface 2 miles of trail between Chehalis and Adna. In addition, one trail bridge was renovated. The Willapa Hills Trail is a 56-mile-long rail trail that runs from Chehalis to South Bend, the western terminus of the proposed cross-state trail.
