News and Updates

Washington State Parks recently released a $1.5 million request for bids for trail upgrades in Swale Canyon.  State Parks reports there was substantial interest from bidders.  This work includes decking and railings on the many trestles, removal of debris piles, and placement of gravel in the many sections of the trail where the original railroad ballast rock made travel difficult.  (Significantly, the debris piles removed from Swale Canyon are anticipated to be utilized in the pending Suburbia Bridge replacement project.)  Swale Canyon is a unique resource and these upgrades will make the Swale Canyon section of the Klickitat Trail safer for hiking, biking, and equestrian use.
