    Paradise side is the main trails! Around the 6 mile long around was their in four hours. Start is a beautiful fully equipped road, waterfalls and, field, Ishihara is, glacier, and Cliff, is spectacular, and wild animals and walk halfway up Mount Rainier last! Dress pants and backpack and sports shoes if you are fine I guess! So cold that just blows the wind, sunshine, temperature adjustment is easy to dress is recommended! Also, I think with drinks and snacks is good! By the way, during the local short-sleeved short is dressed bread person, we do not recommend that it is not impossible to another (laughs)

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.
