Sound to Olympics Trail
More great news! Kitsap County Public Works just advertised for proposals to hire a consultant to complete a feasibility study of NKTA's proposed route across the Divide. That is the two mile long trail corridor between Miller Bay Road and Port Gamble-Suquamish Road-so the link between the North Kitsap Heritage Park and the Port Gamble trails. Our volunteers worked really hard to find a trail route through this area last year when we applied for the Birkenfeld grant. Having lost our boots more than a few times, we know it's a tricky area with both wetlands and a crossing of Grover's creek, so we're glad to have the help of professionals. NKTA really appreciates Kitsap County's leadership and the good folks at Kitsap County Public Works who will be doing some intense homework on this vital & challenging link!
