We enjoyed a splendid day weather-like in the Mount Rainier National Park. We had only a few hours, so coming from Seattle we entered the Niaqually entrance and we could not go farther than Paradise. One gets a map and some directions at the entry after paying the entrance fee. The road is well marked and has many places where... More

I highly recommend both the Paradise and Sunrise park points. Each has great places to stop and take pictures of majestic Rainier, waterfalls rivers, streams, and lakes. There is plenty of time for a day trip[ to see both and make numerous stops,. There is plenty of hiking and high effort activity available, but there is also a lot to... More

We made the trek to Mt. Rainier to gather for a family retreat. The park entry " day fee" vs. the annual pass, was a no brainer for us. Yes, we live in the area, so the annual pass was a better deal. It's a well maintained national park and the rangers are very informative and helpful to the park.... More

Weather was excellent. Clear, blue skies and low 70s for temperatures. Take your time to hike a path/trail of your choice, but also sit and view the wonderful scenery.

The Skyline and Lakes trails and Pinnacle Peak are the best! So peaceful and beautiful. And no matter where you are, Mt. Rainier seems just a 100 yards away!

The views are absolutely stunning. The paths at the top are very well taken care of and clearly marked. The whole experience was remarkable. One of the most beautiful places! (There is construction right now, so be patient)

We toured the park for several hours and it is really breathtaking to see the views, the massive trees, the beauty of the park. Certainly worth the drive to see this national park. We did have periods of rain and fog, which just added another level of interest and challenge to handle the curves the road takes.

Get there before the glaciers melt or the volcano erupts. Did a quick one day tour. Awesome place to visit. Big trees, waterfalls, glaciers, vistas. Best to go in September. Lest people.

We visited Mt Rainier with my grown children and it was an amazing experience. The drive up to the top offered some of the most beautiful views I have ever seen with the valleys, streams and the Cascade mountains surrounding everywhere. This is a must see when in Seattle. Leave before 7:15 to avoid traffic and make sure you have... More

This was my first time at the park and I was left speechless. I stood in awe before the giant trees and beautiful mountain. I definitely recommend going to Sunrise, as it is the less frequented area of the park (at least when I went) and I think it is even more beautiful.
