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 Yelm will use this grant to develop a 1.2-mile paved segment of the regional Yelm-Prairie Line Trail. This phase will extend the existing trail in Yelm across the Centralia Power Canal toward the Thurston/Pierce county line to a viewpoint at the Nisqually River. The primary recreation opportunities provided by this project are walking, jogging, bicycling, and horseback riding.
