My wife and I do a 1-2 week backpacking trip about every other year. We just completed the Wonderland Trail in 10 days and it is now my favorite for the U.S. It has everything. Waterfalls, wildlife, glaciers, great mountain views, and wild flowers. Plus, the place is carpeted with berries (especially blueberries) in a lot of areas and you... More

It was intriguing when we read it is a 93-mile trail looping around Mt. Rainier. We covered only a part of it near Sunrise Point. It was really beautiful and surely Wonderlandish! :)

Take 10 days away from the world and spend it in peace. This 97 mile trail goes around the base of Mt. Rainier and will bring you back to your center.

The trail has its parts that are tough but it is worth it. We did not camp here so of course we did not do the whole trail but it was worth doing the 10 miles that we did. You will not be disappointed with the amount of things you see and enjoy!!!

We did a small segment of Wonderland that we accessed from near one of the parking lots. It was very woodsy and steep. Beware of mosquitoes!

Wow, it was hard to keep my eyes on the trail as I was continually snapping my head to the left to take photos of the great views of Mount Rainier. While on the Wonderland trail, we crossed below two glaciers on exciting "bridges" over raging rivers of glacial water.

Just got back from our 8 day trip around Mt Rainier. In a nutshell, we had a fantastic trip. We did not have reservations and had to travel from Vancouver Island, so I was worried that we would get there and not be able to get a permit. However, once we got to Longmire, the ranger on duty worked his... More

I hiked the whole trail, and I would go back to the north and east sides, but would mostly avoid the south and west sides. The north and east are scenic and wild, with good trail and a lot of alpine hiking. The west side is often low, hot, buggy, and mountain views are rare. The south side is a... More

I have only done it in pieces. It is glorious but at almost 100 miles it is a major undertaking. Backpackers go for it! Research thoroughly before you go. You can cache supplies. You need permits.
