Recreational Trails Project - Jake's Wetlands Trailhead

The Nevada Division of State Parks administers grant funds from the Federal Highway Administration’s Recreational Trails Program (RTP). Approximately $1.2 million in funding is available for the 2017 fiscal year. Applications are due by February 3, 2017. The program funds both motorized and non-motorized recreational trail projects for federal, state, and local governments, American tribes, special government districts and private individuals and organizations. “This is a great opportunity to create or improve trails so more people can get out and appreciate Nevada’s natural beauty,” said Eric Johnson, Administrator of Nevada State Parks. Previous projects have included the Clear Creek Discovery Trail, the Tahoe Rim Trail Association Outdoor Leadership Guide Training and the Fort Churchill Ruins Loop Nature Trail. For further information or questions, please contact Janice Keillor at 775-684-2787 or jkeillor@parks.nv.gov.

The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) is a Federal-aid assistance program to help states provide and maintain recreational trails for both motorized and non-motorized recreational trail use. Each state develops its own procedures to solicit projects from project sponsors, and to select projects for funding, in response to recreational trail needs within the State. Nevada State Parks administers the RTP in Nevada. The available amount to be received for the next cycle is typically announced each winter/spring.
