DIFFICULTY LEVEL 2
Scale of 1-5. 1 is least difficult; 5 is most difficult
Many of our hikes on this tour are on well-established trails, but we do hike in areas (such as coastlines) where trails are not established. Hiking can be rocky, muddy, on slick moss-covered rocks, and other types of rugged terrain. Although we’ve rated the max elevation at 1,800 feet, our hike to Camp Muir on Mount Rainier can include as much as 4,600 feet of elevation gain if we’re able to reach the famous mountaineer’s camp.
