A loop trail on the northeast side of Mt. Rainier to Burroughs Mountain & Frozen Lake with a side trip to Mt. Freemont This is a great loop hike that will take you to a fire tower, several alpine lakes and a close up view of Mt. Rainier from the top of Burroughs Mountain with a return on the famous Wonderland Trail. The trails are easy to follow and the views are spectacular. Bring a camera.

Beautiful Trail! Pretty easy to do, and a ton of fun! No dogs are allowed, and it wouldn't be the best for kids, but it is a beautiful hike with amazing views of the mountain.

Awesome hike that you can take even inexperienced hikers on. The climb is very gentle, but the views are absolutely stunning from just about any stopping point you choose. Just remember to make sure you go when the Sunrise Entrance to the Mt. Rainier national park is open since they do close this entrance for many months of the year.
