This hike will bring you up the drainage of the Inter Glacier and return you over the broad Burroughs Mountain. Take this 11 mile loop hike up a glacial drainage basin to an alpine ridge with spectacular close up views of Mt. Rainier. You'll then descend past a very cold alpine lake and part of the famous Wonderland Trail. If you want you can camp in the White River Campground the night before to get an early start on the trail.

One of my favorites so far after moving to Seattle, WA from Finland early 2015. Mainly because you get to see the diversity of the beautiful nature we have here and the views are just awesome. It's a very scenic trail.
