Washington State Trails Map
Washington’s trails map includes information on local, state, and federal trails.
While still a work in progress, the interactive map represents nearly 12,000 miles of trails. You will find information about how long the trail is, what amenities you can find along the way, what the trail surface is, and what types of uses are allowed on the trail.
How the Map Came to Be
In 2006, the Washington State Legislature asked that a statewide trails database be created for both land managers and the public, but the cost kept the project dormant until 2013.
In 2014, the Office of the Chief Information Officer's Geospatial Program Office began a pilot project with a small group of volunteers and students designing a spatial database following the federal trails data standard. The group received a small grant from RCO’s Nonhighway and Off-road Vehicle Activities program to support the data collection effort and a legislative appropriation in 2015.
The line and point features and use attributes have been aggregated and standardized from many federal, state, and local public sources.
