Very pretty area. We enjoyed this hike a lot.

This was a nice hike with a beautiful waterfall. We found the little trail that took us closer to the base and then we continued down the trail and ended up at reflection lake. This made the stop worth it as the waterfall itself is not much of a hike.

Very good hike. Went till we were even with the bottom of inter glacier. Stayed away from the glacier as rocks were coming down from the top of the glacier. Look out for those if you go beyond the campground. Beautiful up there. The top of the mountain looks soooo close and inviting

I haven't done a hike in a longtime. This was my first in 2018. Beautiful meadows, marmonts running about, and a quick change to an Alien landscape. I'm out of shape by about 30 pounds, and parts were quite strenuous, but worth it.

Great Family hike! Try to time the hike with clear skies to take full advantage of reflection lake.

Fun hike! Go left when you cross the street. LOL You'll figure it out.

The postcard photos can't be beat on this trail. I spent two hours at the base of the falls and it was so relaxing. Don't forget to bring a towel if you're going to hike down to the river. I'd recommend a pair of water shoes for you travels, it's a must for my pack now.

How do you get underneath the Waterfalls? We hiked past the viewpoint from the parking lot today.

Amazing views of the entire cascades on a clear day. We were able to see Unicorn Peak, Mt Adam, Mt Hood and Mt Saint Helen - not to mention the incredible view of Rainier behind that! We barely ran into anyone

Absolutely beautiful hike. Tons of different things to see. We camped over night right next to Forest Lake. The hike back out during sunrise was gorgeous.

This is a seldom traveled trail out of Sunrise. You cover all types of terrain: scree fields, meadows, and forests. You don’t have a view of the mountain, hence the low traffic, but it does have the reward of beautiful vistas, creek crossings, and a serene mountain lake. And Huckleberry Creek lives up to its name. So many huckleberries, I had to wait for my husband as he picked and ate along the trail. Perhaps the only downside is that you have to climb up on the return. Still worth it!

This was an awesome hike. We did a sunrise hike and it was so beautiful! I would recommend doing the same. It becomes very challenging close to the end, but it is beautiful!

Hiked on a cloudy day that resulted in no views of the Mountain - disappointing. Well maintained trail has a mild and gradual uphill to Basin campsite and very smooth hike back down to White River campsite. No knee or toe busting. Went on a Saturday in August and there was a moderate amount of hikers out for a misty day. Most were heading to or coming from Emmon viewpoint.

Considering all the trails in the park, I was a bit disappointed. I wanted to see more of the mountain :(

One of the best hikes in the park

We hiked the first ~1.2 miles roundtrip of this trail in late July -- just far enough that, turning around, we could easily take pictures of us with a wonderful unobstructed view of Mt Rainier that included the pretty turquoise lake near White River. The wildflowers were pretty, but no where near as abundant as at Paradise or Lake Tipsoo. The biting insects were voracious; we unfortunately learned that Picardin was ineffective -- DEET is necessary throughout this park.

An absolutely beautiful and well-maintained trail. It's generally an easy and forgiving hike on the way up to Glacier Basin campground until the last .5 miles or so (where it becomes significantly steeper). We hiked it twice: once in the morning, and once in the late afternoon. I definitely recommend hiking it sometime in the morning, as the lighting on Rainier was perfect and not overexposed as it was in the afternoon.

We spotted lots of wildlife on this trail as well - if you walk a little ways past Glacier Basin campground toward the scree fields, you're in prime marmot territory (we spotted two scurrying around on the rocks there).

Started at Reflection Lake to Narada Falls. Nice hike, ascends and descends both ways. Lots of bugs so bring some bug spray. There was a small patch of snow near Ruby Falls that kids were able to play in. Park is very crowded especially at Henry M Jackson Visitor center....waited an hour to get in park...got to entrance at 11am. This is a nice option for a family hike that is further from the crowds..took us about 3 hrs to 4 hrs...but we stopped and enjoyed the views and took breaks for the kids.

Super easy hike, very flat. Worth it for the viewing area.

Great hike, went early, nice breeze on the trail,

First of all, it’s a moderate trail, Mt. Rainier has it listed that way as well. Started at reflection lake and hiked 5 miles total in and out to Narada Falls gained 1013 ft elevation beautiful views. On the path to Narada falls you do cross two roads so be careful, but after every road there is a mini fall worth checking out. FYI you can drive to both reflection lake and Narada falls as well. Take plenty of bug spray and water.

We did a loop from Narmada Falls to Reflection Lakes and then hit part of the Wonderland trail. Beautiful day, wonderful hike.

Beautiful trail but full of mosquitoes. I took my daughters (6 and 8) but we only made it half way and had to turn around because of the mosquitoes swarming us nonstop. I counted 15 bites just on me! We had bug repellent too, but should have invested in stronger stuff.
