Description

From the top, Ginny's Trail begins at a small opening in the salal off of the southwest corner of the North Viewpoint Trail (if you're traveling clockwise and you hit Sidewinder, you've gone too far). Hikers will quickly find themselves picking their way down the ridge line over moderately steep terrain. The dense salal and occasional close tree combine with smatterings of roots and rocks slabs to give the trail a nice undeveloped feel.

Roughly a third of the way down, Ginny's Trail merges over a corner of Sidewinder before heading back into the trees at a faint opening (directly across from a Sidewinder sign). The rest of the trail alternates between smooth ribbons of singletrack and small unruly patches of roots. There's also a few sections of casual exposure before the trail ends on Bonnie and Clyde's.

The trail is named for Ginny Darvill, whose family donated two sizable sections of land to the park after her husband Fred passed away in 2007.

Flora & Fauna

The forest here is dominated by salal with makes for a dark green ground cover. Like most of the park, keep an eye up for various bird species.
