and help us Build Trails for Our Future

A robust NKTA membership will:

  • Demonstrate the ongoing support of our community and citizens
  • Provide the manpower necessary to bring our mission and vision to fruition
  • Be invaluable when pursuing grants and outside funding


The all-volunteer NKTA has already accomplished a great deal in its relatively short life - we have:

  • Received a grant from the National Park Service to provide assistance in developing the North Kitsap String of Pearls Trail Plan
  • Opened the NK Heritage Park in partnership with the Heritage Park Stewardship Committee and Kitsap County Parks, including improving the White Horse/Heritage Park Connector trail
  • Maintained and enhanced Olympic Property Group (OPG) forest trails
  • Mapped land and water trails in North Kitsap
  • Sponsored Paddle Kitsap and the Poulsbo Marathon
  • Partnered with Regional and County organizations to advocate trails, active (non-motorized) transportation and Safe Routes to Schools
  • Worked to develop plans for the Sound to Olympics Greenway Trail connecting trails of the Mountains to Sound Trail in King County across Kitsap County and the Hood Canal Bridge to the Olympic Discovery Trail
  • Received input from over 400 residents during 26 community meetings and our survey, with over 700 respondents, to find out how you’d like to see trails developed in North Kitsap


Here is what your membership will help us achieve:

  • Develop safe bike/pedestrian routes and connections in North Kitsap
  • Provide recreation opportunities for residents and visitors
  • Complete the Sound to Olympics Greenway Trail section of the Washington Cross-State Trails
  • Enhance economic opportunities for local businesses
