Well worth the time to get there, the views are fantastic.

The road to get there is winding with great scenery. The drop off seems to go down forever, best not be in a hurry, enjoy the ride.

I visited Mount Rainier back in 2011 and never would have thought I'd be living in Washington in 2016, so crazy. You never know where life will take you. So me and my DH set off for a drive to Mount Rainier recently and it was his first time and our first time together, it was as magical and as... More

Oh My Goodness ! What a stunning National Park, the first sight of Rainier itself took our breath away, lovely drives whichever route you choose but don't miss the wildflower meadows or the film at Paradise Visitor Centre, they were my highlights. It was a beautiful autumn day, we were very lucky to have clear blue skies up until 1pm

We were lucky to have a clear sky without any rain to enjoy the sight and the snow. The weather was great and we enjoyed our time walking and taking pictures.

Wow, this is a really amazing park. A majestic mountain, glaciers, waterfalls, lakes, ... We did some great hikes around Sunrise and Paradise. We visited early July and some trails were still inaccessible due to snow. Also Tipsoo Lake is great stop. I would recommend at least one entire day in the park.

Don't miss this place if you are visiting the PNW - it is a must!! Hike, walk, sit and enjoy the scenery which is abundant to say the least and if you're a climber, you can take part in that experience as well - guided for sure.

What a scenic and beautiful place. The mountain is gorgeous; the many waterfalls spectacular. We had the added attraction of magnificent weather.... sunny skies and few clouds so great views of the mountain.

I have never been to this kind of national park before. Despite the fact that we only went on a short hike, I was blown away by the beauty and diversity of it. We saw streams, old structures and bubbling mineral waters. I can't wait to go back.

First, we are not hikers, so we didn't plan on doing any trails. I cannot imagine how much time you would need if you wanted to hike! There is so much to see here. If you are planning on going to Mt Ranier, definitely only do it if it is a clear day. It is doable as a day trip... More

We stayed first stayed in the national park camping ground which was amazing with the tall, old, magical trees. Be prepared for steep climbing in the car and sharp turns. The next night we went to the NW corner via the Washington state park and drive 7 miles up this very rough winding road, then hiked one hour up to... More
