This place is like a whole other world, just completely breathe taken. And the fresh air that smells like the valley that is full of wild flowers, almost seems like a dream when you stand at the base of the mountain. Always check you radar when you are here as the weather can be rather unpredictable. We happened to make... More

We hired a car and drove from Seattle to Mt Rainier, a beautiful drive with lots of places to stop on the way, we had a lovely clear day which offered great views of the mountain. It's a lot cheaper option to hire your own car rather then a tour.

The emerging Fall colors are awesome and the Mountain is at least 1/3 snow covered and glistening in the sunlight. As I walked the meadows towards myrtle falls had someone told me I died and this was Heaven I would have believed it so. Only GOD could create such wondrous beauty. Reminded me of Germany.

The highlight of our family visit to Sunrise. An enjoyable challenge for us Midwestern flat-landers! The Mt. was obscured by forest fire smoke the previous day, so we were relieved to have nearly clear skies for this hike, and it really added to our appreciation of the beauty of this area. Watch for mountain goats in the meadows below as... More

Don't come to Washington without seeing this beautiful mountain and all is has to offer. Be sure to do the short walks to all the waterfalls (including Christine and Narada) enroute to Paradise, including the Trail of Shadows (ruins and mineral Springs along the way). There are so many hikes to do, from easy to the gruelling 92 mile hike... More

In would recommend anyone visiting Mount Rainier to get out and walk, ramble or hike. This is a stunning place and worth taking the time to check out the wild flower season.

I was staying in Renton, WA and I decided to take a trip to The Mt. Rainier National Park which was approximately 1 1/2 hours drive from Renton on a Saturday with very little traffic. The entire drive from Renton driving on the 167 to WA 410 E was pleasantly a scenic view all along the way. I stopped and... More

One of the best views of Rainier. Watch out for the hungry deer and be prepared for lots of traffic.

Such a beautiful and peaceful drive threw the mountains. So many beautiful photo ops to take pictures with the family. The scenery is breathtaking. Would love to come back and do a little bit of hiking. Only downfall is there Is no cell service at all. But with the scenery you really don't mind
