Recreational Trails Program

Recreational Trails Program project - Incline Flume Trail

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 was awarded for the 2022 fiscal year. The program funds motorized, non-motorized, and educational recreational trail projects for federal, state, and local governments, American tribes, special government districts and private individuals and organizations. Previous projects have included the Kershaw-Ryan Mountain Bike Trails, the Tamarack Lake Trail, Outdoor Ethics and the Elko SnoBowl Trail System. For further information or questions, please contact Elyse Jolly at 775-684-2775 or emjolly@parks.nv.gov.

RTP funding is limited to approximately $1.2 million per year. Allocation of funds will be competitively determined by the RTP Advisory Committee and State Parks Administration in December 2022, following the annual meeting and evaluation of proposed projects.

Pre-applications may only be submitted through the State Parks Online Grant Portal, located at https://nvparks.webgrantscloud.com/. Paper copy or e-mail submissions will not be accepted.
