Project Description

Bainbridge Islanders love trails. Together we can expand and improve our trail network.

Expanding our trail system: The Bainbridge Island Parks Foundation works with the community and public agencies to add new trails to public trail networks. We help create new trails connecting parks, neighborhoods, schools and service centers by working with the Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Rec District. We facilitate the acquisition of trail easement agreements with generous private property owners, neighbors, business owners, and developers. We coordinate plans with the City Non-Motorized Transportation Advisory Commission to fulfill comprehensive plan goals.

New trails: New trails created with Parks Foundation support in 2018 include the Ferncliff to Cave Trail with a connection to the STO, the Old Mill Trail, a beautiful winding path through the forest along the north edge of IslandWood, Weaver to Finch Trail, Wyatt to Shepard and the new boardwalk at Hawley Cove.

Do you love trails? Do you walk, run, or exercise your dog by hitting the trails in your neighborhood or on longer excursions? Do you like to be in touch with the natural beauty of our Island?

Contribute to BIPF so we may continue to build and support an exceptional public trail system.
