Poulsbo Trails Committee and the Urban Paths of Poulsbo (UPP)

The Poulsbo Trails Committee is a citizen’s committee comprised of business owners, representatives of organizations and government, and residents; brought together with a common vision to create a trail plan for the City of Poulsbo. With the assistance of the National Park Service – Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program, the final document will expand and guide future trail development.

Vision Statement

The Poulsbo trail system embodies the community spirit that distinguishes our city, linking the places we live, learn, work, play and find inspiration. Trails reconnect us to ourselves and lead people of all ages and abilities to greater health and self-sufficiency. Our trails, like branches, support Poulsbo and reach out to connect neighbor to neighbor; land to water; people to nature; homes to businesses; city to countryside; and Poulsbo’s history to our future.

Urban Paths of Poulsbo – Final Plan

At their May 15, 2012 meeting, the Poulsbo City Council approved the Urban Paths of Poulsbo Plan as a functional plan in the 2011-2012 Comprehensive Plan amendments. This adoption is the culmination of over three years of work by a dedicated citizen’s committee, coordination with staff and support of the city council. This plan represents a vision that can be used by developers, volunteers, staff and all citizens for many years to come.

This document has been developed in coordination with other planning efforts undertaken by the city. Some of these planning efforts include the Comprehensive Plan (adopted December 2009); the Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Plan (adopted June 2006); and the transportation element of the Comprehensive Plan (adopted December 2009).
