ARLINGTON — The Centennial Trail Coalition of Snohomish County will conduct its next general meeting from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21, in the Stillaguamish Conference Room of the city of Arlington Utilities offices at 154 W. Cox Ave.
Snohomish County Parks Director Tom Teigen will be on hand to receive a $5,000 check, a grant from the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians, for the fences and railings on the "Tin Bridge" near Cloverdale Farm, four miles east of Arlington in Trafton.
"We're excited as we near the opening of another four miles of the White Horse Trail, from Centennial Trail to Cloverdale, and we can turn our attention to opening the next segment, from Swede Heaven to Fortson," said Matthew Riggen, vice president of the Centennial Trail Coalition of Snohomish County. "We hope you will come and help us celebrate, and let Tom and others know how important the continued development of the White Horse Trail is to the community of Darrington."
"The White Horse Trail is a fantastic adventure through the Stillaguamish Valley," said Sarah Arney, hiking representative and Board member of the Centennial Trail Coalition of Snohomish County. "What a great asset for the residents of the valley, to be able to go on a few miles' walk without dodging log and gravel trucks, and for visitors, what a great opportunity. I'm excited to be able to ride from Arlington to Ballard, on the Burke Gillman Trail, and to have lunch at Ray's Boathouse. I hope that residents across Snohomish County will collaborate for the sake of more trail connections in the future."
