Help Name The Trail!

The Washington State Department of Transportation is asking you to help name the pedestrian-bike path that will be part of the North Spokane Corridor (NSC).

The 10.5 mile trail will parallel the new highway and run from the Wandermere vicinity to I-90. It will connect with existing trails such as the Centennial Trail and Ben Burr Trail as well as link neighborhoods along the way. The first segment of the trail will open next year from Farwell to Freya Road. A committee of citizens and civic leaders will review the submitted names and choose the winner.

To submit a suggestion for the trail name, go to thenorth Spokane Corridor website .
