This was an awesome place to see. The mountain is breathtaking. We tried to visit the Sunrise area, but there was a very long line at the NPS entrance. We went to Paradise instead. It was so busy there in the afternoon that I ran...More

It really is beautiful! It's huge, full of glaciers, has the potential to be seriously dangerous and is stunning at sunrise. Husband got great views at Tipsoo lake and next morning we drove up Sunrise- was staggered to see how many already there- some seemed...More

Took 2 days and visited both Paradise and Sunrise. Had a wonderful dinner at Paradise and was amazed the food was great and so where the prices. Nice meal and great service. The drive up on either side is great and full of scenic overlooks....More

these mountain dominates the Seattle view and well it should. A few hours drive from Seattle and you are in a forest wonderland. A must do.

there isn't enough that can be said about this National Park, yesterday we saw our first elk in the park (yes, we have seen deer), butterflies, dragon flies, bees and various birds. It's a wonderful spot to take the family and if you're brave enough...More

We were thrilled this month to Visit our favorite National Park and to stay at the venerable Paradise Inn. It was a normal snowpack this past year, so there were still patches of lovely white stuff on the trails in mid-July. However, the snow on...More

We drive through the National park up to the visitors center at about 6000 ft. July is a beautiful time to visit because it was sunny and warm at the base of the mountain, yet snow on the mountain. It is a gorgeous drive. I...More

Hello Satvik, It took me 1 day to travel to and hike around Mt. Rainer and visit the gift shop and visitor center with traffic being light. Since I am not a travel agent, the best way to answer the rest of your questions... More

Hey all Looking for help on what to see: 6 day trip flying into Portland renting a car flying out of Seattle. First time to Port, have been to Seattle's downtown, but nothing else. Originally had set for 3days in Mt. Hood/Portland area to explore downtown & some hiking around Mt. Hood/Columbia River Gorge exploring Then 3 days either around Port Angeles to see visit Olympic National Park sites, or using those same days and staying close to Rainer National Park to do some hiking/see Mt. Saint Helens. Ideally since we are for sure spending time in Portland Area & Mt. Hood bc we have never been to the area. I was thinking it would be great to get up to the Olympic site where there is different vegetation, beaches, etc. but after reading some comments, it seems that Rainer & Mt. Saint Helens are not to be missed. We could def hit either Rainer or Mt. SH for a 4hour stint on the day we drive up to Olympic area, but probably not both... My question is for people who have been to both, if you had to cut out something what would you cut out? Is 3days/3days too much at either? If so, should we try 2/2/2 or a 2/1/3 if you think all of the stops listed are obtainable. Thanks so much for your help.
