I summited Mt. Rainier during a 3-day guided climb in May/June 2016. I selected Alpine Ascents International as the guide service. AAI has an office in downtown Seattle & provided roundtrip transportation to Mt. Rainier National Park. We met the other members of the team a day before the climb & performed a thorough gear check. We had 8 team... More

This is a spectacular mountain that dominates the Washington skyline. Arrive early to miss the hordes of tourists, get walking and enjoy relative peace and quiet.

When to visit? Any time is good but the finest is when the wildflowers are in bloom, late July to August depending on the weather. We were there in July, spending the night at the lodge. it was overcast but still lovely. There are long and short trails starting at the lodge. The restaurant is good.

Iconic Mount Rainier, visible from almost all of Washington on a clear day, is spectacular up close. Hiking trails, camping, lodges.

Lovely to see but poor accommodations take away from the experience. Parking was awful too. There wasn't even an area for people staying at the hotel. It was a bit of a disaster for us!

This is one of the most beautiful mountains we ever experienced! We went of a hike from the Sunrise visitorcenter, and this is a great place for hiking close to Mount Rainier and getting absolutely stunning views of the mountain. Everything is in technocolor early july. We saw a cinnamon colored black bear sitting approximately 60 yards from us starring... More

The road to get there is winding with great scenery. The drop off seems to go down forever, best not be in a hurry, enjoy the ride.

I visited Mount Rainier back in 2011 and never would have thought I'd be living in Washington in 2016, so crazy. You never know where life will take you. So me and my DH set off for a drive to Mount Rainier recently and it was his first time and our first time together, it was as magical and as... More

Oh My Goodness ! What a stunning National Park, the first sight of Rainier itself took our breath away, lovely drives whichever route you choose but don't miss the wildflower meadows or the film at Paradise Visitor Centre, they were my highlights. It was a beautiful autumn day, we were very lucky to have clear blue skies up until 1pm
