We walked for 2.25 miles to find out that the trail is closed due to unstable conditions. It was at least half in full sun and hot. Also, a lot of bugs. Plus, next to an industrial timber yard to start off. Not very pleasant.

Really long, straight trail with no elevation. Bummer to some but perfect for someone who is a beginner at bigger miles or for running! On the way back I took a right at the first cross roads and found a sweet river not far off with a gravel beach. Only saw one other couple on trail on a Monday

A pleasant trail to meditate in motion. Very flat nothing to trip over...the mind can wander without having to pay too much attention to the feet!

It was gorgeous and we had the 13 mile walk to ourselves. Flat and peaceful. Hardly any views of the mountains though. Some river views. I wouldn’t do the hike again, but the drive in was well worth it. The views from the amphitheater were great, which is about 3 miles in. Once you’ve hit the amphitheater you’ve pretty much seen what the hike has to offer. I recommend turning around there.

All around beautiful trail! The drive in Darrington is worth the trip itself, what a awesome time. I can't wait to go back. Very easy and flat. My daughter, dog, and I went on March 4th so there was snow on the trail but still fun.

First to Review

This is a long and very flat trail and the views are spectacular! We didn't see anyone else there on Friday, April 1st but it looks like a poplar horse trail. It would also be good for mountain biking. We walked from a trailhead in town to the amphitheatre where we had lunch while looking up at Whitehorse mountain.
