Mount Rainier National Park

Description

The crown jewel of Washington and the granddaddy of the Cascades. At nearly three miles high, it towers higher than any other mountain in the state and holds the title as the second highest peak in the contiguous 48 states. Since 1899, this natural wonder has been showcased in the 365-square-mile Mount Rainier National Park. Mt. Rainier is surrounded by deep valleys, cascading waterfalls, dramatic wildflower meadows, awe-inspiring old growth forest and 26 glaciers. Whether photographing the meadows, climbing to the summit, trekking along the trails, or just admiring the view, over one million visitors come to the park each year to experience the magic on the mountain. The Stevens Canyon Entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park offers access to the popular Ohanapecosh Campground and Visitor Center. On your way to the mountain, wander among the towering giants and witness trees thousands of years old at the Grove of the Patriarchs. Explore Box Canyon from this popular road into the park.
