Hummingbirds fluttered near us as we walked the gorgeous trail along the canyon. We were short on time and had much to see, so the 1/2 mile loop trail was the perfect exploration outside of... More

This is a nice pit-stop if you're coming to/from Mt. Rainier. There is a short hike involved, not too difficult. But you are rewarded with a great view of the deep canyon afterwards.

An short hike to a very strange "box canyon". Narrow and deep--bridge goes over it to view. Worth a look for the short hike that it is.

And take this short easy hike for a bird's eye view off a tiny bridge looking down into a narrow steep canyon roaring with water. This fifty something grandma had no problem with the 0.5 mile trail and it loops right back to the road where you parked. Such a great perspective of Box Canyon and most people don't realize...
