24 Darrington Ranger Station

     The Forest Service District Headquarters is in Darrington, and a stop at the Ranger Station is an excellent idea if you need maps, information, directions, or a Recreation Pass for access to the many amenities on the Mountain Loop. Directly across the street is the Nels Bruseth Park, with a beautiful display of original Sauk dugout canoes, used by native people and settlers for early transportation on the local rivers.
