3 Days in Early July

My wife and I will be spending 3 days in Packwood in early July. We're thinking of spending one day exploring Mt. Ranier NP. The day we leave we plan to visit Mt. St. Helen's on our way to visit friends in Banks, OR. The other day is open, but we're considering visiting some wineries east of there.

Any specific suggestions on where to go in Mt. Ranier NP? We would definitely be up to some moderate hikes. And other other suggestions of things to do in the area?

Spend all the time you can at Rainier. There's nothing like it. Try to visit both Sunrise and Paradise, as well as Grove of the Patriarchs. You can't go wrong with any hike at the visitor center areas, but I like the Skyline Trail at Paradise, and Burroughs Mr, My Fremont lookout or Sourdough Ridge at Sunrise. If 8 miles is okay, Summerland.
