Astounding hiking trail

Wonderland Trail goes all around Mt. Rainier. It's 100 miles long and goes through a variety of ecosystems. You need a permit to hike the whole distance.

we started at Longmire and made it a bit on the trail but the bridge was out so we could not get to Paradise. it's such a well maintained trail, interesting, diverse and if you imagine a hiker's "beltway" around the entire mountain, you can get on and off and endless exits.

The Wonderland Loop is one of the most spectacular treks one can experience in Washington State. It offers beautiful flowery meadows, hillside full of berries, wildlife sightings and of course incredible views of Mt. Rainier. Prepare yourself for lots of ups and downs. The trail often drops you to a bottom of a valley just to take you all the... More

The camps we slept at were very well kept with flat spots for your tent and toilets, The trail is well marked with signs at every camp, footbridges and... More

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.
