Discussion for a connector trail near Alexander Lake

For many bicyclists, a problem is finding a direct route from Silverdale to the Gorst area. Some community members are hoping to change that.

Jack Stanfill, a resident of Northlake Way, who has been attending Kitsap County meetings on county trails for the past several weeks, has suggested building a link that will connect Northlake Way to Alexander Lake to join City of Bremerton trails.

“It would take a lot of bicyclists off the road off of [State] Highway 3,” Stanfill said Monday.

While the connector is in the preliminary stages of discussion, Stanfill plans to work with the county and city to create the trail with other community volunteers. He doesn’t know what the cost of the trail would be but said money would come from volunteers and fundraisers.

“We’re not asking the county, state or feds,” Stanfill said. “Just some volunteers and we’re willing to build this trail.”
