Darrington Trail


Washington Department of Natural Resources, Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance


Snohomish County

The Watershed Company provided environmental services to the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance in support of their effort to create a 20-mile non-motorized trail system in unincorporated Snohomish County. Looking to avoid impacting the ecology of two particular Forestry-zoned parcels, DNR desired an extensive inventory and analysis of the wetlands, wildlife, and vegetation of the 80-acre area. Our multidisciplinary staff of arborists and ecologists conducted a thorough and efficient review and helped DNR develop a regulatory compliant trail design that showcased the land’s natural beauty while protecting its wetlands and streams.
