Mount Rainier National Park charges a fee to enter. Fees are $30 per vehicle or $25 per motorcycle. If you are entering on foot, horse, or bike the fee is $15 per person. You can also purchase a park specific annual pass for $55. Please note: This area of Mount Rainier National Park is closed due to snow for much of the year; check conditions before planning to hike this trail. This trail follows the Paradise River from the Paradise Valley Road up to the Skyline Trail. Parking is available just past the trailhead across the road at the Paradise River overlook. Fourth Crossing Trail gradually climbs while rewarding you with abundant wildflowers and picturesque views of the Paradise River as it tumbles over several little falls.

A little wet and muddy towards the top but wildflowers and Rainier views are worth it!

Truly amazing hike. The views are spectacular but be prepared for hiking through snow for most of the hike.

First to Review

A park ranger pointed out this trail that my sister and I otherwise would have missed. It was a quick (except for our many photo ops) but very rewarding hike. Could be used to reach the Skyline Trail from an alternate parking area.
