State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.
State Parks intended to use this grant to develop the initial access for the Wolfe property in Jefferson County. Improvements would have included parking, a vault toilet, informational kiosk, landscaping, and directional and interpretive signs. State Parks was also going to construct a short section of trail to connect the new parking area to an existing trail. State Parks completed the initial planning, schematic design, and geotechnical and wetland investigation at the proposed site, but was unable to complete the project due to the environmental and permitting constraints.
