We drove to Mount Rainier for a day of beauty and hiking. It took about 2 hours to get there from Seattle, about a half an hour more to get up into the mountain park (Sunrise Visitors Center). Grab your map, etc before you go - we lost data coverage and cell coverage right about when we got there. Dress... More

Wonderful views. Hiking. Great interpretive signs along the road. Be sure that you drive at least as far as Paradise. If your hearty enough hike up to the edge of the glaciers.

Unfortunately we visited Rainier in August 2015 in the midst of the worst wildfires in the history of the state. Even while smack in the middle of the park the thick soupy haze of smoke made it difficult to appreciate the majesty of the mountain. The park is awesome with its abundance of lakes, waterfalls, and hiking trails. Longmire/Paradise is... More

We travel two extra days and several hours out of the way to revisit this park and walk the trails out of Paradise Inn and Visitor Center. Stunning eye candy of majestic peak, forever views, glaciers, rock, flora and fauna. We had time for the five hour, five mile, Sunrise loop (1700 feet gain in the first third with beauty... More

Our family of four just visited the park for two days (we have two boys ages 10 and 12). We enjoyed being able to see Mount Rainier for most of the drive. The hikes we went on ranged from 0.5 miles to 4 miles. At the Paradise hike we saw marmots. We especially enjoyed the Reflection Lakes -- the reflection... More

We visited the park for a day, with members of the family who were not interested in long nor strenuous hikes. And we had a blast! We used the Southwest entrance (Nisqually) via SR 706. The National Park Service website gives you the best address for the GPS: 39000 State Route 706 E, Ashford, WA 98304. Traveling from Seattle their... More

On three previous trips to Seattle I'd NEVER been able to see Mt. Rainier. On this trip I saw it from Seattle, and visIted the park. It IS a beautiful park, shady, winding roads intermittently allowing views of the majestic Mount Rainier. We stopped for an early lunch at a lodging-restaurant-gift shop facility--the food was delicious and reasonably priced. The... More

We just returned from a 12-day excursion in and around Seattle. We were unsure whether or not to make the trek to Mt Rainier but were enchanted by alluring views from Seattle and decided to drive on over. Best day ever!!! We checked the weather forecast and it looked promising, although when we left at 6a we had reservations bc... More
