The long, long trail nearly here

It still is the longest five miles in the world, but at last, if you can’t see the finish you can at least close your eyes and imagine it. The Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail, to use the formal title, will be extended north to Lincoln Rock State Park.

For nearly 20 years we have thought this to be a very good idea, and at last it appears possible thanks to a timely $3.75 million appropriation in the state capital budget. The funding came as somewhat of a surprise, since the trail had only recently emerged from its long legal struggles and community support was still not unanimous. Rep. Brad Hawkins, R-East Wenatchee, a member of the House Capital Budget Committee, was able to insert the trail funding and, happily, it sailed through the Senate unscathed and was signed by Gov. Jay Inslee on Sunday.
