I live in Seattle and all the hiking trails and scenic roads that I know of are all decades old. I haven’t heard of any new investments into making the nature more accessible but perhaps I’m just not we’ll versed in local developments.

Is all outdoors infrastructure development currently on pause, at least in the US? If not, where can I learn of new mountain roads and hiking trails/campsites?

As you would expect, a lot of those work parties are for maintenance work on existing trails.
