Current/2013 - Trails & Signage: This project consists fo improving and building a network of soft surfaced pedestrian trails to expand the recreational use of this park. Trails damaged by illegal motorized vehicle use will be narrowed and/or removed. Unsuitable, ghost and dead end trails will be blocked and re-vegetated. Trailheads will be improved and marked and way finding signage will be added to select main trails. Signs should be installed by September 2013 and trail construction should be complete by April 2014. Work is being funded by the Parks Improvement Bond Measure, approved by the citizens of Tacoma in November of 2005.
