Summer is time for Scenic Drives, Camping, or taking a picnic. Plan a vacation exploring wilderness on the Pacific Crest Trail.  You can access the PCT from the Suiattle Trail accessed by the newly reopened Suiattle Road, FSR #26 and the North Sauk Trail accessed by the Sloan Creek Road, FSR #49.  Maybe just take a day or a weekend to enjoy the great outdoors on one of the many
 hiking trails Darrington has to offer.  Darrington is surrounded by five scenic rivers, the Sauk River being for its whitewater rapids.  Treat yourself to an adventure on the wild side with a whitewater rafting trip.
