“Amazing hike”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

I loved this hike. Mount Rainier was in view the whole hike. It was a busy day and there were many other hikers out. There was still patches of snow because of the heavy winter snowfall. Probably one reason for so many people on the trail... there weren't many trails that weren't under 2 feet of snow!!
The trail was a little dry and dusty, but there were some wildflowers to photograph.
It starts off at 7,000 plus elevation, so that took a little getting used to. There were sections of the trail there were like walking on chunks of broken dinner plates!! I liked the bare trail better. We made it to the Mt. Freemont fire lookout for lunch and returned in time to drive around to see more of Mount Rainier. Great day!!

“Breathing”
Reviewed September 4, 2011

Everyone should see this place, its awesome. We saw a brown bear walking around the visitors center, we were so excited. They have nice picnic areas set up. Its very cool eating lunch in such beauty and if picnicing isn't your thing they have a small restaurant where you can get eats.

The drive up Mt. Rainier is awinspiring! We were blown away just looking around us as we drove to the lookout. Vast and high canyon walls! Snow in august! We stood and looked out and praised God for his most amazing handywork!
