I have visited Mount Rainier twice, both times with friends from NY in the same year. In May, when the first friends visited, there was still snow everywhere, and one road was still closed. By July, when the next friend visited, much of the snow was gone, except for the higher elevations.

This is now one of our most favorite parks we have visited. The drive in is beautiful with lots of scenic look outs. We enjoyed the visitor center and got a great view of Mt. Rainier.

This was a great day trip from Seattle. It was nice to get out of the hustle and bustle, see the scenery along the way, and once there Mount Rainier did not disappoint. The scenery was just inspiring. We left Seattle about 8 am. Entered the park through the Nisqually entrance about 10:30 am and drove through to Paradise. We... More

I drove to this park from Seattle and I cannot say enough good things about this park! Although I was there on a cloudy day, I still was able to see glimpses of the amazing volcano. I spent most of the day in Paradise Valley and hiked a few of the trails. There were a lot more people than I... More

Just amazingly gorgeous. Have lived here over 25 years and this was our first trip to Mt, Rainier. Camped for 3 days and lodged the other 2. Cannot see much if cloudy or rainy, as our first 2 days were, but with clear skies the views cannot be beat. You can easily see all parts of the park in 3-4... More

This is a popular destination. The snow is melting all summer, so appropriate shoes are recommended. There's a lot of hiking and a lot to see in the Visitor's Center.

We drove through the park, but did not see much because of the clouds (not even the Mt.Reiner). Besides that, there were too many visitors for my taste.

This is one of the best National Parks I have been to. The backdrop is so utterly beautiful and there are several facilities available. There are a variety of trails to cater to different abilities, but it wasn't too crowded when we visited on a warm July day. The path can get steep at times, but nothing too arduous. Keep... More
