About Discover Nature
Discover Nature/TourMtRainier offers you a personalized hike or hikes that are a fun, safe exploration of one of the most iconic mountain volcanoes in North America. I will happily help you choose and guide you on the best trail or trails to connect and appreciate this place of awe and wonder. This tour is perfect for people with their own vehicle as we will meet at a designated trailhead or park entrance. Bring your lunch to enjoy along the trail with some of the best surroundings. After our time together, you will have the time and ability to explore more of the park; perhaps even stay to enjoy the sunset or night sky! I am one of the few companies with a Commercial Use Permit from Mt. Rainier National Park which allows me to offer you hikes longer than 1 mile beyond a trailhead helping us get away from the crowds and increase your moments of Wow! All hikes are private from 1 – 5 people with a variety of meeting times. Hiking poles and the use of binoculars are provided.

Diann was extremely accommodating to our family. Earlier in the week my hubby developed a knee issue which affected our original plans with Diann. She immediately offered alternatives which were excellent. We started out doing a little snowshoeing that morning. Afterwards she took our 17 & 18 year old daughters to the Summerland trail. They loved it. Diann seems easy going and extremely knowledgeable about the surrounding area and safety. We will definitely be back and would love to use her services again. Tilley Family

What a wonderful, memorable visit to Mt Ranier thanks to Dianne. Her cheerfulness, kindness, and love for the mountains were so contagious. Thanks to Dianne we were able to experience the mountain by snowshoes was such a unique adventure. We are so thankful for the time we spent with our guide

The highlight of our Seattle trip was our hike at Mt Rainier. We were clueless as to what to do so we researched for a tour; however, we wanted a private tour catered to our expectations. We were so happy we found Diann. She was awesome. She was attentive, kind and had tons of patience. She knows Mt Rainier very well so she took us on hikes with beautiful waterfalls and answered all our questions. We highly recommend Diann as she made Mt Rainier an unforgettable experience for us.

Well this thank you is way overdue :) I am not receiving notices that a review has been written anymore. Perhaps because I am not selling my tours through their platform. Anyway! "0ngd0g" I appreciate you taking the time back in October to write of your travels with my company to the beautiful Mt. Rainier National Park. We truly had a beautiful day to explore and I am glad you found your time with me unforgettable. I hope you have many more amazing adventures!!! happy travels ~ Diann

Diann is excellent. Very knowledgeable in the history of the park. Knows her trees, berries and flowers which was very interesting. Made sure we were comfortable every step of the way. We are older so she adapted the tour for short, beautiful hikes and scenery.

This was our family's first trip to the Pacific Northwest. We are from Florida, so mountains are definitely not in our vocabulary! Diann planned the perfect day - while the hike was strenuous for us flat-landers, the views we were rewarded with were simply breathtaking. She was so incredibly patient with the less athletic of us (okay, it was me) and took great care of every detail. She gave us so much information about the plant life, animals and eco-system of the area. We wouldn't have gotten that from just setting off on our own. I highly recommend Diann/Discover Nature!!

Hey Brandy and family! Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your hiking adventure with me last summer. We certainly had a great weather day and you all did wonderfully well for "flat-landers"! :) We had lots of great laughs and moments of awe for sure :) Glad to know you saw more than you would have on your own as that is truly one of my goals! Keep on climbing and enjoying life!!!! ~ Diann
