In March 2020, this project was placed on hold due to COVID 19.  As the Governor’s Healthy Washington initiative is implemented, the timeline for this planning process with be revaluated. If you have questions please contact the project manager using the information below.

In 2019 the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission began a trail planning process at Larrabee State Park. This process is ongoing and we need your help.  Trail planning was identified as a park need during a 2016 Classification and Management Planning or CAMP project at Larrabee.  The park has a multitude of trails intended for a variety of recreational user groups.  The trail system includes:

  • 2.7 miles of hiking-only trails
  • 1.5 miles of biking-only trails
  • 13.8 miles of multi-use trails (biking/hiking/horse)

In addition to other items this planning process will identify and address:

  • Current trail uses
  • Trail system mapping
  • Relationship to other nearby trail systems
  • Healthy interaction between user groups
