    IDAHO DEPARTMENT OF PARKS AND RECREATION FUNDS OVER $6.8 MILLION FOR
    RECREATION PROJECTS STATEWIDE


    BOISE - The Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation (IDPR) has approved
    $6,834,840 in recreation grants to fund needed recreation projects
    statewide.
    The grants assist Idaho communities in upgrading and adding recreation
    facilities for Idahoans and visitors to our state.

    Each year, IDPR awards grants from several programs for development and
    maintenance of recreational facilities in Idaho and to provide programs for
    the benefit of recreationists.

    The annual grants come from a variety of sources. Money from the
    registration of boats, RVs, snowmobiles, motorbikes and ATVs goes into
    building and maintaining facilities for their use.

    Boat docks and ramps, RV campsites and dump stations, trail construction
    and maintenance, snowmobile grooming sheds and parking lots are just a few
    of the types of projects funded by IDPR grants.

    “In most cases, the recreationists themselves decide where registration
    dollars are best spent,” said Robert Meinen, IDPR Director. “Grant
    requests are reviewed and ranked by statewide committee’s made up of those
    who participate in each recreational activity. Then, the Idaho Park and
    Recreation Board reviews the recommendations to see that they meet our
    strategic plan goals.”


    Government entities around the state can apply for recreation grants
    through IDPR in January of each year. More information about the grant
    programs can be found at www.parksandrecreation.idaho.gov.

    City of Boise will receive $14,000 from Recreational Trails Program for trail construction at Watchman Trail.
    Any idea where this is?

    Southwest Idaho Mountain Bike Association will receive $65,000 from Recreational Trails Program for trail construction/trailhead at Eastside Trail.
    This is great news!
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    New trails

    I believe the Watchman trail will connect 5-Mile (trail 2) with the Top of 3-Bears/Trail 6. I won't miss that second climb on a single speed from the road to the top 3-Bears.

    The $65,000 will pay for a parking lot and outhouse around the 5,000' marker off Bogus Basin Road. A trail will then connect the parking lot to the saddle where the top of Sweet Connie starts.
