“A more direct ridge line connector with a touch of exposure.”
— Eric Ashley
Older kids will enjoy clambering over the roots and rock slabs as the trail hugs the ridge line.
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.
