We had a great visit - hiked to the falls, toured the visitor center, brought a picnic and spent the whole day. The only nuasance was parking - totally full. The spouse dropped the family off and thought he could circle back to look for parking but they force you to leave when the lot is full. This resulted in... More

Loved the park. Had great weather and explored the mountain. Inn is rustic but a fun experience. Dining room meals...need improvement. Slow service, expensive. Food was disappointing. Overcooked salmon; undercooked chunks of steamed vegetables were unseasoned and bitter. Do not order the to-go lunch from the dining room. The cafe offerings are just as expensive but much better.

We visited Mt. Rainier as a family (2 adults, 2 older teens). One of the highlights of our week-long stay in Seattle. It is an investment of a day. Approx. 2 or 3 hr drive each way depending on traffic and where you stay in Seattle. But, it was totally worth it. The Paradise Visitor center was a perfect destination.... More

We love Mount Rainier. It sits above the Seattle area and so many people identify with it and think of it as "their mountain". It is rare that a mountain is so accessible, but is still so potentially volatile. There was still quite a bit of snow on some of the hiking trails in July this year. The hikes are... More

A must see! The drive is is beautiful but I must say, if you can avoid it, do not visit on a weekend! We went on a Sunday and it was extremely crowded with limited parking at the upper most visitor's center.

We visited both the Paradise and Sunrise Visitor Centers and Mount Rainier was hidden by clouds at both places. But on our way to the Sunrise Visitor Center from Paradise we stopped to see Box Canyon and lo and behold the clouds parted on Mount Rainier and we caught a glimpse of the summit. Beautiful! Both Visitor Centers have their... More

Speaking strictly about hiking on the Paradise side of Mount Renier, this is an absolute do not miss experience! My husband and I are not hikers, at least we were not hikers, but we did set out for a smaller intermediate trail in Paradise! This trail should have taken us about 45 minutes, well 2 1/2 hours later we got... More

We were fortunate to have a nice clear day catching nice views of the mountain as we drove up from our motel in Packwood to the visitor’s center at Paradise. Enjoyed a ranger talk in the lodge and then drove out to the north catching some nice views from that perspective.

Lately I went on a trip with friends to Mt. Rainier. This place is amazing and simply beautiful. For people who want to climb and see views, snow and wildlife animal this place is great!
