Jocko Valley Trails System

Organization: Arlee Community Development Corporation

Year: 2011

Amount: $10,000

Status: Project in process

Type: Bike path/trail

Address: Arlee, MT

The Arlee Community Development Corporation is partnering with the local school district, the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, and other state and local organizations to build the first trail system in this rural community on the Flathead Indian Reservation. Motivated by a high rate of childhood obesity and the absence of safe routes to school, the community is promoting active transportation and physical fitness. Our organization's $10,000 grant will fund the first phase of the project, creating a set of “hub” trails connecting residents within a one mile radius with the school complex and town center.
