Public input sought on Yelm Prairie Rail Line Trail (YPRT) project to Roy!

“This is a conceptual map of a Washington Cross-State Trail showing how the Yelm Prairie Line Trail would help close the gap between two long-distance trails already in State Parks ownership. The Yelm Prairie Line Trail will cross the Nisqually River and create a new non-motorized connection between Thurston and Pierce counties.” Credit: National Parks Service via the Daily Journal of Commerce

“ForeverGreen Trails seeks Yelm Prairie Line Trail Public Input”

Pierce County’s ForeverGreen Trails is seeking public input on the Yelm Prairie Line Trail (YPLT), a non-motorized pathway that will connect the cities of Yelm and Roy. The 5-mile project will provide a non-motorized connection across the Nisqually River and connect Thurston and Pierce Counties.

ForeverGreen, in cooperation with the Cities of Yelm and Roy and Thurston and Pierce Counties, is engaged in a conceptual study of the trail. The goal of this study is to gather information about the project requirements, stakeholders, and public opinion about the YPLT for use by the entities that will build the trail as well as agencies that provide grants for such facilities.”

“ForeverGreen anticipates that the Yelm Prairie Line Trail will be completed by 2026, although the larger Cross-State Trail will take substantially longer than that. For now, they are asking the public to provide input via their questionnaire for inclusion in their study. The deadline for the survey is November 14th,” by Larry Leveen, The Suburban Times.

  1. Looks like a lot of work has been done on this already. Maybe something more progressive would be rails to trails AND rails. Wider access could have trails and keep some kind of rail. Maybe even an Elbe kind of steam train attraction? Would arrant more visitors to Roy and Yelm. Can the small rail car go to Tacoma as well?
