OLYMPIA — A $75,000 state grant is helping Snohomish County rebuild a part of a trail buried by the deadly mudslide in Oso.
The state Recreation and Conservation Office announced the award on Tuesday.
Snohomish County is planning to use the money to resurface 3 miles of the popular Whitehorse Trail, which stretches from Arlington to Darrington. The grant is part of a larger effort to improve the trail.
The March 22 mudslide took out four dozen homes and killed 43 people when it came down. It also wiped out about 1 mile of the trail.
The east-west Whitehorse Trail connects with the 42-mile Centennial Trail. Together, they provide nearly 70 miles of unbroken trails from King County to Skagit County.
