Length: 6.4 mi • Est. 3 h 36 m
NOTE: The road leading to the trailhead closes seasonally due to snow. If the road is closed, it is a 5 mile walk to the trailhead. Tolmie Peak Trail is a beautiful hike past alpine lakes and subalpine meadows to a fire tower lookout with great views of the surrounding peaks and a commanding view of Mount Ranier. The two-story structure houses a lookout station on the upper level and storage at ground level. With an elevation gain of 1000 feet, this lake trail takes hikers up to Eunice Lake, Ipsut Pass - part of the Wonderland Trail, and up to Tolmie Peak Lookout. The trailhead is located on the north side of Mowich lake in historic Mount Rainier National Park just southeast of Seattle and Tacoma in Washington state. An active volcano, Mount Rainier is the most glaciated peak in the contiguous United States, spawning six major rivers. A National Park Pass is required to access hiking trails in the park. NOTE: Check current trail conditions before heading out. Log footbridges frequently wash out during the winter and other conditions could be affecting the trail. The road to the trailhead closes during the winter.Show more

Length: 5.6 mi • Est. 3 h 2 m
Please note: You need a National Park Pass (7 day pass, Annual Mount Rainier Pass, America the Beatiful pass) to get into Mount Rainier National Park and do this trail. You may purchase it at the entrance or online (just be sure to print it out and bring it with you!) The beginning of the trail started at the ranger station of the sunrise visitor center with grassy meadows full of wildflowers. Towards the end of the trail the landscape was mainly rocks with incredible views of Rainer and surrounding mountains. It is cool being able to experience different landscapes throughout the hike.Show more

Length: 14.7 mi • Est. Multi-day
Three day climb via Camp Muir, Ingraham Glacier & Disappointment Cleaver This is one of the standard routes up Mt. Rainier. You will ascent the Muir Glacier to Camp Muir and spend the 1st night there. Then you will continue on to the Ingraham Glacier campsite which is just another 1,000 feet above Muir. There you will spend one more short night to acclimatize before leaving camp around 2am in the morning for an early summit bid. You will ascend Dissapointment Cleaver and hopefully make the summit near or just after sunrise. Return via the same track 9,000 feet after packing up camp in one day. You will be tired! Note: Before attempting this climb you MUST have experience in glacier and high alpine travel and crevasse rescue. Please check and read the supplemental links with this guide before you go. Use this guide as a directional track, but do a A LOT OF READING about this mountain before attempting it. There are many guide services you can contact as well if you do not have experience. Off line map is recommended to get oriented as several users have reported that this trail is not well marked and/or that there may be poor cell reception in this area. Show more
