Full day trip for Seattle, but well worth the trouble. It was a long drive, somewhere between 2-3 hours each way, depending on traffic. You will be outside of cell phone range for most of that time, so plan accordingly. The views are stunning. You see streams, waterfalls, animals, wildflowers, and glaciers. Plan to start your visit at the visitor... More

I LOVED this place! One of the best national parks ever! (other than Yellowstone. Sorry!) I loved the view and all the hot springs and stuff. Paradise...was not 'Paradise'. It was cold. It was wet. There was snow...in July. But other than that, it was amazing. A must go to place! You will love it! Nice Junior Ranger Program!

While driving back home to San Diego from Seattle we did a little sight-seeing and decided to make the trip here. It was definitely worth the drive! Beautiful scenery with many waterfalls. There are several hiking paths at the base of the mountain. Very green and lots of wild flowers as well as deer. The area even reminded me a... More

We had 8 hours in the Seattle area between ending our cruise and flying home. A great friend from college met up with us for the day and suggested a trip to Mt Rainier. We loved this idea on this sunny day, having spent too many rainy days on our Alaskan cruise. She drove us to the Sunrise entrance, we... More

This was the last national park stop during our West Coast (LA to Seattle) road trip. I think we were lucky because we had very good weather for day hiking and when we arrive the top of the mountain was clear - later in the day clouds covered the top. My wife and I hike Reflection Lake one morning and... More

It was the best camping ever with breathtaking view of Mt. Rainier at sunrise and otherwise too! Mt. Rainier National Park has amazing trails and numerous campgrounds and we enjoyed at White river campground. The campground has good flush toilets. The day use area toilet has hand wash installed, the camp toilets do not have hand wash so best to... More

I needed a respite for a couple of days, and this was the best! If you have a couple of days, visit Paradise, Sunset and the Carbon River and Mowich Lake Ranger station. I spent a day at each, and over night at Paradise Inn. The Carbon River has at least 5 great short hikes carved out in the old... More
