SR 530 Is Open!

Darrington Is Open For Business!  The SR 530 is now open after the devastating mud slide that occurred 10:37 am, March 22, 2014.  The settlement of Hazel was mostly buried by a mile wide mudslide and cutting off the small town of Darrington, WA.  Darrington is now accessible traveling on the highway into town by a one lane detour through the slide area.  We would like to thank all of the hard work and dedication to reopen the road to beautiful Darrington!

Spring is here and Darrington's amazing display of wildflowers is just around the corner!  The Skunk Cabbage and Woodland Violets  are in bloom.  Soon we will see the beautiful Trillium appear amongst the mossy forest floor.  A wonderful early season hike to see wildflowers is the Old Sauk Trail and the Accessible Old Sauk Trail is a great short trail where people of all abilities can enjoy the beauty of springtime!

Time to get those snowmobiles up to the Snow-Park on Segelsen!  Or if you are looking for a little cross-country skiing or snowshoeing the Whitehorse Rails to Trails is a good choice or try one of the low elevation forest roads.  Just remember when driving in snow if you think it is getting to deep to drive in GET OUT while you still can and don't wait until you have to!

Your Great Christmas Tree Adventure!

Make this year's Christmas tree special!  There's nothing like going out into the woods to find that perfect Christmas tree and this year so far the snow levels are still pretty high in elevation making it easier.  It is always recommended to check
 forest road conditions before heading out.  You can get your USFS Christmas tree permits at the Darrington Ranger Station on weekdays and Darrington IGA and Darrington Hardware seven days a week.
