This was a nice easy hike. Living in the NW and having visited the Redwoods and other old growth forests, this was not a unique hike for me and it was very very crowded. If you are driving by, worth a stop. If not, I do not think it is worth a special trip. Well maintained.

This is a very easy, and extremely beautiful 1.5 mile trail. It's flat for the most part, and takes about an hour to an hour and a half to complete. It would be perfect for families with young children, or people looking for a more leisurely hike in the park. Though there are no views of Mount Rainier, there is... More

This is a wonderful hike for kids. The trail is well defined and easy, crossing the Ohanapecosh River on a very cool, single person suspension bridge and then meeting a boardwalk loop through stupendous old growth Cedar and Fir.

This is 1.3 mile, 45 minutes long easy hike. Only 100' elevation change. But be amazed. Ohanapecosh River is one of the clearest rivers in Mt. Rainier National Park. It is so beautiful. You will meet Twin Douglas Firs which are 1000 years old. Words cannot describe the awe to see these giants. Those moments you feel so tiny is... More

Well worth the stop. Less of a hike and more of a stroll to view the array of trees the area is known for

Sitting in a valley in Mt Rainier National Park, this beautiful grove of enormous Fir trees will not disappoint. This attraction sits just passed the western entrance of the park so once you are in the park you find a place for your vehicle and begin the short hike. You will cross a cable bridge over a crystal clear flowing... More

This is a very easy trail (but watch for the roots and rocks), and every few steps you will want to grab that camera. The beauty and majesty of the 1,000 year old trees is imposible to describe. We just wanted to sit in their glory all day long.

This is an easy one hour walk through a forest of large redwood trees. It is about a half mile each way to a half mile loop, making a mile and a half total. At one point, you cross over a wooden bridge. Only one person can cross at a time. There are no views of Mount Rainier on this... More

My kids (age 17 & 12) loved this short hike and huge trees. We took great pics and made memories of a lifetime. The firs are so much prettier than the pine trees we are used to seeing daily in Georgia.

This was our introductory trail in Mount Rainier park, and it was a good choice. The hike is easy, the views of the forest and gigantic trees are impressive, and adding to our delight, the trail crosses a river via hanging bridge.
