A beautiful hike with minimal elevation gain around Naches Peak with an option to visit Dewey Lake. This is a great trail that is perfect for the family within Rainier National Park. It will take you from Tipsoo Lake with its great view of Mt. Rainier around Naches Mountain in a loop hike with many spectacular views. On the opposite side of Naches Peak from the highway you will have the option at a junction to visit two more alpine lakes if you have the energy for the descent down to them and ascent back.

Breathtakingly beautiful and very challenging. This location is by far one of my most favorite parks.
