    If you are in WA, you have to go hiking in the Rain Forest. It is beautiful all year long. Family Friendly!

    Soaring to 14,410 feet above sea level, Mount Rainier is the hallmark of the Washington landscape, even appearing on the license plates. An active volcano, Mount Rainier is the most glaciated peak in the contiguous states, spawning six major rivers. Sub-alpine wildflower meadows are in abundance, as are ancient forests at lower elevations. It’s not rare to see a bear on the trails, so study safety procedures in advance...and bring a camera.

    A gorgeous Pacific Northwest national park, Mt Rainier is a detour from Seattle that's entirely worth your time, if only to appreciate the epic scenery. The park has plenty of hiking opportunities, mostly at high elevations. The best time to visit is during the summer when wildflowers bloom or in the early fall, when all areas of the park are still open, snow hasn't fallen yet and the biggest crowds are gone.

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!! In the winter sometimes the roads become impassable. You must always have tire chains just in case. We just went last weekend and there was 8 feet of snow. Amazing.

    What a place to visit. It's a perfect day trip during your stay on Vashon. In less than two hours you can be at the top of the world. Visit Sunrise or Paradise.

    I had the luxury of waking up to this beautiful sight for a year while i was stationed in Fort Lewis, WA out in Tacoma. During the summer months especially June-August this mountain is visible from anywhere on the Puget Sound. There is a small camp you can drive to and even hike up to get a better look at the Volcano. It is really a sight to behold. and its free!

    I loved spending a few hours here. It is great place to go for a hike or a picnic or just to visit the visitor center for some history on the mountain. They have a fun little video on the volcanic history of the mountain which is really interesting, and there is a picnic area out in front of the Paradise Visitor Center where you can bring your own food to enjoy nature and the view. We saw lots of dogs in this picnic area -- definitely dog friendly! (How can you go wrong in a place named "Paradise"?)

    One of the most beautiful places on the planet. We visit at least once a year for my wife's birthday, and today was one of those gorgeous days that keep us coming back again and again! Photo is from a trail near Paradise visitor center.

    Fortunate enough on two different trips that the lovely lady showed her head, all 14, 411 feet of her. 800' (yes FEET) thick ice! Great camping and hiking.

    Breathtaking. You can see Mt. Rainier from 100 miles away when it's clear.

Description

At nearly fifteen thousand feet above sea level, the peak of Mount Rainier can be seen in the Washington skyline for miles in all directions. This is in fact the most prominent mountain in the continental United States and the center one of country's oldest national parks. Boasting nearly 240,000 acres, this expansive park was founded in 1899 and today hosts some of the region's best places to enjoy outdoor activities. Visit the Longmire Museum to learn more about local history, view the gorgeous wildflower meadows at the Paradise Jackson Visitor Center or pitch your tent at the Ipsut Creek Campground for an overnight stay. The many miles of hiking trails include the short, easy Rain Forest Nature Trail that goes in a loop and the more challenging 17 mile Carbon Glacier Trail that weaves near the edge of a glacier fed river.
