The website claims you must carry tire chains in your car to enter the park during the winter, but this is not enforced unless there is a pending storm so don't bother. Enter the park through the Nisqually Entrance in the southwest corner of the mountain (must pay $15 admission fee per vehicle), then drive along the picturesque Paradise Road... More

An amazing place for people of all ages. Give it a whole, long day! Or stay overnight at a lodge, if you dont camp.

Great roads, numerous hiking trails, an interesting history, and abundant restaurants on all roads in and out of the park make this a great experience. Mt. Rainier is a photographer's dream and their visitor's center is nice. Be sure and check out the hiking trails near the visitor's center as most are wheel chair accessible and all lead to interesting... More

I'm so glad we booked a tour to go to Mount Rainier, our tour guide was the Best. Very professional, polite and funny! He (Joe)! Was wonderful and we would love to come back sometime. One can truly see God's beautiful and perfect creations. We will do it again and ask for Joe as our guide.

This was the first "adventure trip" my wife and I took when we first met. Coming from the flatlands of Ohio Mt. Rainier National Park is like a whole new world. It's beautiful. Flowing waterfalls, wildlife all over. I cannot wait to bring my children to the amazing place.

From the way to get there to the majestic mountain itself, everything was just awesome!!! It was covered with snow. They show a tiny movie which tells you about the habitat & mysteriousness of the mountain. A must watch!!! :-)

Thee really wasn't the snowfall expected in February when we came but up by the visitor centre the snow was plentiful. A ranger announced that a guided snowshoeing walk would start in an hour's time so we had lunch and joined the 20 or so guided walk- after getting kitted out. The walk lasted for 2 hours and it was... More

It was a fantastic drive passing dense forests, rocky ridges, beautiful rivers, unique volcanic rocks, tall pines, pristine lakes. It was vista after vista. We enjoyed some of the most scenic and majestic views of Mt Rainer. Incredible view of the valley from Chinook Pass Summit too.

This is such a spectacular mountain. Beautiful from afar, and even more beautiful as we hiked through the trails.
