State parks to consider new name for John Wayne trail Thursday

UPDATED: Mon., May 14, 2018

The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will Thursday consider renaming the cross-state John Wayne and Iron Horse State Park trails.

The meeting will be held in Spokane, according to a news release. The meeting begins at 9 a.m. at Hotel R.L. Spokane at the Park, 303 W. North River Drive.

The name change is being considered because the two trails are really one trail. One name could reduce confusion, state officials believe.

At the meeting, the commission will consider the 2019-21 budget request and hear presentations on a classification and management project at Riverside State Park, among other things.
