This hike begins in the famous Paradise Meadows of Mt. Rainier, a subalpine wonderland of flowers and fragile meadows. We’ll head up the Skyline Trail towards Glacier Vista, with its panoramic views of the Nisqually Glacier, and then continue upward. A full day – and a lot of elevation – takes us to Camp Muir, the basecamp for mountaineers aiming to summit Rainier, at over 10,000 feet. On our way we’ll keep an eye out for marmots, pikas, mountain goats, and more, while soaking in views of Mt. Rainier and beyond. If the weather cooperates, we could get views of Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens, and Mt. Adams, three of the other major stratovolcanoes in the Cascades range. Our return will take us past the braided Myrtle Falls, and finally back to the vehicle and the main lodge. If you’re interested in a memorable hiking experience on Mount Rainier, this is one is an excellent choice.
