Missouri Grants Over $1 Million To Trail Projects

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Missouri is granting more than $1 million to recreational trail projects around the state.

The state Department of Natural Resources said Tuesday it has chosen several projects for funding through the federal Recreational Trails Program. Among the recipients are the Finger Lakes State Park in Boone County in central Missouri, Johnson Shut-Ins State Park in eastern Missouri and Southwest City Parks and Recreation in McDonald County.

The recipients are expected to match at least 20 percent of the grant. A funding requirement also targets 30 percent of the funding for motorized trails, 30 percent for non-motorized trails and 40 percent for diversified trail use.
