Clark County built the first segment of the Chelatchie Prairie Rail-with-Trail in 2011. Primary access to this multi-purpose trail is from Battle Ground Lake State Park and NE Palmer Road. The trail currently ends inside public property owned by the Washington Department of Natural Resources.
The county’s long-term plan is to provide a trail along the entire 33-mile-long railroad corridor between Vancouver (Burnt Bridge Creek Trail at Stewart Glen) and the end of the rail line at Chelatchie Prairie. This proposed multi-use trail will create a direct connection across the county and link to several other local and regional trails systems.
