Historical Trails

There are several Historical Trails and other Historical Interest you may want to see while in Darrington.

Just across the street from the Darrington Ranger Station is the Nels Bruseth Memorial Garden with a display of dugout canoes, some of these canoes are from the old days of Texas Pond.  Several of our hiking trails take you to locations of the old fire lookouts or a portion of an old route to one.

The Old Pioneer Historical Marker shows where the old Pioneer Road once was located traveling through Darrington.  You can see this marker as you drive south towards the Mountain Loop Scenic Byway on the left (east) when passing through the Darrington St. intersection.
