Mount Rainier National Park

4.7
Mountains · Hiking Trails · Waterfalls
The star attraction of Mt. Rainier National Park is the massive active volcanic peak from which the park takes its name. Rising to 4,392 m (14,410 ft) above sea level, Mt. Rainier stands as one of the country's most glaciated peaks, its ice and snow creating the headwaters for six major rivers. The volcano features a prominence of 4,027 m (13,211 ft), so there's nothing in the way to block its view. This difference creates a wide range of ecosystems, from ancient forests at the base to wildflower-filled meadows at mid elevations to the icy summit. Black bears, bobcats, and mountain lions roam the varied terrain, while trout and salmon ply the clear rivers. The park draws outdoor enthusiasts with its extensive hiking and biking trails, climbing routes, and angling waters. Getting there takes about two hours via car from Seattle.
