A beautiful afternoon hike up an abandoned road to an old mine near Darrington.

The Mine Road is lovely in the spring, with blooms and berries, including trillium, yellow violets, and salmonberries. Amble two miles to the mine, passing Moose and Furland Creeks along the way, and coming to your destination, situated just across from Larson Creek.

Scramble along the old Ashton Creek dry bed past the mine for about 150 yards for good views of Whitehorse Mountain and its many waterfalls in the summertime.

Getting There

Heading east toward Darrington on SR 530, turn right (south) on 387th Ave NE/Old Mine Road (there is a gas station and Whitehorse Convenience Store on the corner) and drive .6 miles to the dead end with a steel gate on the right and barricade of large boulders on the left with a wooden bridge directly behind them. (The steel gate on the right marks the way to Whitehorse Ridge.) Cross the boulders and the bridge over Furland Creek to begin the hike. This is the same trailhead as for the Neiderprum Trail (marked junction on right in 1.25 miles).
