We did the Wonderland trail to Summerland and Panhandle Gap. Great day hike. We had perfect weather, the views and flowers were stunning! Made us want to put the entire trail on our bucket list!

If I need to be recharged, this is where I go. Nothing better than staying at Paradise, getting up before dawn and hitting the Wonderland trail which is the best time to see wildlife. The light is beautiful that time of day. The sounds of the mountain are not something you will ever forget. Don't limit yourself to the Wonderland... More

from little day hikes between campground and strenuous switch backs to gain and loose altitude traveling the wonderland trail is a great way to see spectacular vistas and burn a lot of calories. very well maintained trails and campgrounds help even the most inexperienced backpacker to have a great time

We only did about 10 miles of it -- both day hikes out of the National Park Inn including going up to Narada Falls. Great hikes. Very few people even though it was August.

i hope to do the whole trail someday with my kids but for now we are stuck to doing small sections. we have done random bits and peices with all being great. you will see parts of the mountain not available any other way.

My Bro.-in-Law and I have hiked all but one portion of the trail. I would recommend doing it at the end of July when the wild flowers are at their best. We have hiked the lower portion through the forest. It was a nice hike, but drizzly, There are a number of nice water falls to see and it is... More

Wonderland Trail goes all around Mt. Rainier. It's 100 miles long and goes through a variety of ecosystems. You need a permit to hike the whole distance.

we started at Longmire and made it a bit on the trail but the bridge was out so we could not get to Paradise. it's such a well maintained trail, interesting, diverse and if you imagine a hiker's "beltway" around the entire mountain, you can get on and off and endless exits.

The Wonderland Loop is one of the most spectacular treks one can experience in Washington State. It offers beautiful flowery meadows, hillside full of berries, wildlife sightings and of course incredible views of Mt. Rainier. Prepare yourself for lots of ups and downs. The trail often drops you to a bottom of a valley just to take you all the... More
