Considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world, Mount Rainier luckily hasn't erupted in the past 100 years. With around 8,000 people a year completing the three-day climb to the top peak, the volcano is popular with experienced climbers. The park is also known for its easier trails, which come with scenic views across the range. Mountain bike trails are available, and you can enjoy snow sports, such as skiing, in the colder months. If you're looking for the perfect picture, check out the reflection lakes where you can capture a stunning image of the volcano and its reflection. A visit to Mount Rainier represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Mount Rainier National Park trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • What an amazing place. Get there early to avoid the wait getting into the park. Parking will also become difficult as the day goes on. We went to the Jackson Visitor Center, watched a short movie.....  more

  • This is justtttttt an amazing place. Though it was annoying with the long wait times to get in , it is WORTH the wait .. the view is just magnificent… it’s almost like a dream ! God gift to human beings . One of the best places that I have ever seen in my life . There are few trails and depending on how much you can walk , take those trails . When we went , it was too crowded . Went late summer and there were beautiful wild flowers . Just loved them . We walked for few mins to view the rainier and then walked towards myrtle falls view and back to visitor center . It was just a breathtaking adventure … loved it to the max . A must visit place for anyone who visits WA .. 👍👍👍
  • Too good. The peak. The Range. The paradise points. Waterfalls in between. The drive through across the mountains. Nature at it’s best. Loved mount Rainier.
  • Absolutely gorgeous views! Only thing to regret is paradise was still closed😭
  • Beautiful mountain, worth a visit either in Summer, Winter and Spring. I had wonderful time just to get to the parking area of the mountain. I have seen various pine trees, waterfalls .
  • Sometimes they don’t let people into the park it’s too full, but when we got closer we knew it was worth it! So pretty! Lots of hikes, use all trails, bring sun screen and mosquito spray. Trails have plenty of families, hikers, campers etc. Lots of small lakes (no clue on fishing) but overall really great views and experience.
