“Darvill Trail is a seasonally dry trail through a delightful mixed forest.”— Eric Ashley
Family Friendly As long as it's dry enough, kids will love crossing the many bridges on this trail.
The start of the trail travels a narrow corridor hemmed in by a gravel road and nearby house. This residential scene soon fades away to be replaced by alders and Douglas firs on either side. The route is clearly defined and easy to travel, even where the trail is covered in tangles of roots. Ignore any spur trails you pass, as these lead into neighborhoods.
Ahead, a series of low bridges attempts to keep hikers elevated above the wettest spots in this damp environment. These wooden links to drier ground add a unique flavor to the experience of this lovely forest. Some have chicken wire to reinforce the grip, but others don't, so it's best to pay attention as you cross.
As the trail gains elevation, it only grows prettier. The grade also gets steeper near the top, and occasional sections of stairs have been added to the trail. One such set rounds the exposed roots of a large tree that fell victim to a windstorm in the past. Not too far ahead, the Darvill Trail ends in an opening in the trees at the intersection with the West Loop and Up Quick.
