County to apply for Recreational Trails Grant

Hikers may have more trail choices in Pulaski County in the future if the county is successful in obtaining a grant through the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation.
Pulaski County Board of Supervisors has authorized county staff to apply for a Recreational Trails Grant, which could be used to develop, repair or enhance trails within the county.
The grant would cover 80 percent of a project’s cost, up to a maximum of $100,000. According to DCR, the grant is a reimbursement grant, meaning the recipient must be able to fund the project while receiving periodic reimbursements from DCR.
County Administrator Peter Huber listed some of the possible uses of the grant to include:
• Development of a park along the New River, either along Hazel Hollow Road or under the Route 114 bridge;
• Construction of a parking lot and welcome facilities along mountain bike and walking trails on the north side of Draper Mountain; or
• Extension of the New River Trail to Randolph Park.
According to DCR, the Recreational Trails Program (RTP) is funded through the Federal Highway Administration from gas tax revenues.
