OMG, Soaring Birds on thermal currents, I felt like I was standing in a football stadium covered with snow while birds glided on Thermal currents. I sat in awe of God's majesty as I gazed upon this amazing park. Beautiful and majestic are the only words I can use to describe it!

I wish I could come again here in summer time and do some hikes. We just drove by and made it to the Visitor Center in Paradise, roads were icy already, and most visitors came for skiing or snow shoeing. The views during the drive are really amazing.

We arrived at Mount Rainier National Park, after days of raining in Seattle. We are lucky to see the mountain under clear blue sky. The view at Paradise Valley is magnificent and we went for a couple of trails and the mountain simply looks gorgeous at different angle. The town near Mount Rainier provides tourists with a good view of... More

The views are fantastic, the trails are very well put together, and the staff was wonderful! You can not take a trip to the Seattle area and not make a trip to go and see Mount Rainer! Keep in mind you will spend all day here, plan a day!

We were here for a very short time passing by but we were amazed by the mountain. It is very quiet and meditative place. We want to come back to stay here for several days.

We have never seen the mountain "out" as she was on November 8, 2014. We have been coming out to the Seattle area for 14 years and it usually is hidden by clouds. We drove from Bellevue and traveled clockwise around the mountain so that we would have the sun hitting the mountain as we traveled from the north around... More

Very cool national park. Great views, mountains, lakes, rivers....a great place to get away from cities and get some nature. 2.5 hours from Seattle, ideal to spend a nice day...Wonderfull for photo lovers....but be prepared, it can be very cold close to Rainier top...Just to remind that Rainier is a vulcano....

When we were in Washington, we were "treated" to some awesome views of Mount Rainer as we traveled through the state. Mount Ranier standing at 14,409 feet is impressive. We have driven through Mount Ranier National Park and seen the forests, water areas and lodges there.

So many great views. Many many waterfalls. Large trees, deep gorge with water running through it, colorful moss. Plenty of pull offs and short hikes for some great views. Many longer hikes for the more adventurous. Fall is such a beautiful time. Cell service is minimal. Enjoy the outdoors and be prepared.

We have visited 35 national parks and Mt. Rainier ranks right up there with my favorites. The park views are wonderful and the hiking is phenomenal. We stayed at Paradise Inn which is close to many trailheads. Some trails near the inn are paved allowing everyone access to the great outdoors. We were there in September and the crowds were...
