darrington waIf you’re considering a visit to Darrington, try to bring some binoculars and a camera because this is one of the most beautiful places in the United States.

The Mountain Loop Magic trail and hiking guide is a great way to become familiar with the trails and other recreation opportunities in this area. A good place to start is the Darrington Ranger Station or the Sauk River Trading Post – both can provide lots of information about the incredible nature activities in the area. Other nearby activities include mountaineering and climbing, fishing, and rafting.

Each summer the town hosts the world-renowned Darrington Bluegrass Festival, the Classic Rock Festival, an annual archery competition, a Wildflower Festival, and many other family-oriented activities and events. In addition to the town sports, Darrington boasts an archery range, several rafting guides and a whole bunch of really great people.
