  • This is our favorite hike. Although in total we climbed over 100 floors - thanks Fitbit - it is well spaced and never too strenuous. The scenery is beautiful with great views of forest, lakes, and of ...  more »
  • We took the shorter inner loop trail which was covered in wild flowers ringing the beautiful, if not large, lake which provided a great reflection of Mt Rainier. The earlier the better to get that per...  more »
  • No matter the season, a visit to Tipsoo Lake is spectacular. Not only is it easy to reach as it's literally just off of Hway 410 on the way to Chinook Pass, the 360 degree view is breathtaking. A smal...  more »

  • A great hike in the park. No pass needed. Short with stunning views!
  • Outstanding view of Mt. Rainier in the morning. We hiked in late June and the flowers were in bloom and beautiful along the trail. This is a pretty easy hike as far as distance and elevation gain are concerned. This is a hike that I would do over again for sure.
  • Nice and easy short hike. Beautiful views of Mt Rainier and the wildflowers along the trail. Even some views of Dewey and Tipsoo Lakes nearby. Worth the drive.
  • The rewards for the small amount of effort are fantastic! One of the best hikes I've been on.
  • Great little hike with amazing views.

Best things to do in Mount Rainier National Park

Where to stay in Mount Rainier National Park

You could visit Mount Rainier National Park on a day trip from Seattle, but you'll probably want to stay in or closer to the park to maximize your time there. The park provides three developed campgrounds and one primitive one with nearly 500 individual sites between them. For extra creature comforts, book a room at either the National Park Inn or the larger Paradise Inn. Many park visitors lay their heads in the villages west of the park along National Park Highway. Places such as Jasper, Mineral Lake, and Alder Lake offer a mix of lodges, inns, and bed and breakfasts, almost all of which deliver full views of towering Mount Rainier. You might also find reasonable summer deals on hotels at Crystal Mountain Ski Resort just north of the park, though this is a less convenient option.
