Liberty Lake Trail To Close Next Week

Beginning Monday, October 22 and continuing through Friday, October 26, the popular 7-mile loop trail at Liberty Lake Regional Park will be closed to the public to facilitate trail renovation. The work will include blasting rock to widen and level the trail’s tread in an effort to improve public safety. The trail will reopen to the public on Saturday, October 27th unless otherwise posted onsite.

The work is being funded through a $36,860 grant from the Washington State Recreation & Conservation Office. In addition to blasting work, the grant is funding bridge replacement, interpretive signage, habitat restoration, and other trail improvements along the popular loop trail. The Washington Trails Association, Backcountry Horsemen, and the Lands Council are partners in this project.
