Overview

Come for 5 spectacular days of hiking amidst ancient glaciers, wildflower meadows, and gushing waterfalls in Washington State's Mount Rainier National Park. MRNP offers over 260 miles of maintained trails giving you a lifetime of stunning views of peaceful old-growth forests, impressive waterfalls, high subalpine meadows, and the glacier-capped, 14,410ft Mount Rainier - the fifth highest in the lower 48 states! Marvel as you pass towering hemlocks on the shoulder of the most glaciated peak in the contiguous US. Each day we will hike 7-12 miles, with gains/losses up to 4680 feet on our most strenuous day. For our final hike, we'll attempt the steep climb on the snowfield up to Camp Muir, the highest point one can visit in the MRNP without a permit. It is sure to be a highlight of your trip. Contact the leaders for more information.
