Accommodations and Food
Darrington Motor Inn (1100 Seaman St., 360/436-1776, $59 s or d) is an attractive, small motel with rooms offering mountain views.
Situated in a red-roofed diner with mountain views, Glacier Peak Café (1215 Hwy. 530 NE, 360/436-0602) is an ideal spot to sip on a cup of joe over some eggs before a hike or gulp down some soda with a salmon burger afterward.
For something a bit speedier, stop at the Whitehorse Store (five miles west of Darrington on Hwy. 530) for old-fashioned ice-cream cones.
