PORT TOWNSEND — Another mile of the Larry Scott Memorial Trail, the east section of a proposed non-motorized route linking Puget Sound with the Pacific Ocean, could become a reality next year if funds can be found to match a $123,000 state grant by the end of October.
“Clallam County has more than 30 miles of the Olympic Discovery Trail in place, and will keep building east from Sequim to the Jefferson County border in 2004,” Jan Marts said.
“We need to keep the project rolling, and move the trail out further in the county.”
Marts is a member of the Jefferson Trails Coalition, which sent out a letter last Thursday asking for donations to match funds from a grant from the Interagency Committee for Outdoor Recreation.
In only a week, private donors have pledged almost $13,000, Marts said.
