Washington State Scenic Bikeways
Established by the state legislature through the Revised Code of Washington (“RCW”) 79A.05.800, Washington State Parks is in the process of developing a statewide Scenic Bikeways program. State Parks, along with input from an Task Force of community members, are working to develop the program including an application and evaluation process for route nominations.
The new statewide Scenic Bikeways program is intended to designate bike routes around the state with exceptional scenic, recreational, cultural, and/or historic value. State Parks will manage the program by overseeing the route nomination process, implementation, and designation of routes.
