The Town  of Twisp has accepted a donation of a right-of-way from Tina Heath for a non-motorized trail across her riverfront property.

Heath had granted an easement last year to the town to allow construction of the trail on her seven-acre vacant property on the Methow River between the Twisp Municipal Park and Second Avenue.

Heath recently offered to donate the land needed for the trail to the town. There is already an informal pathway across the property made by residents walking the scenic stretch. The right-of-way is about 20 feet wide.

Preliminary plans call for a 3-mile trail following the river, where possible, through town. Twisp has hired MacLeod Reckord, a public planning and design firm from Seattle, to develop plans for the trail.
