Mount Rainier, Mount Rainier National Park

Considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world, Mount Rainier luckily hasn't erupted in the past 100 years. With around 8,000 people a year completing the three-day climb to the top peak, the volcano is popular with experienced climbers. The park is also known for its easier trails, which come with scenic views across the range. Mountain bike trails are available, and you can enjoy snow sports, such as skiing, in the colder months. If you're looking for the perfect picture, check out the reflection lakes where you can capture a stunning image of the volcano and its reflection. A visit to Mount Rainier represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Mount Rainier National Park trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Mt. Rainer is amazing and the atmosphere is very pleasant. It's a beautiful place to visit with family and nature surrounding the Mountain is phenomenal!!
  • Haven't been there ever but it look likes a nice place from the pictures. The whole "active" thing is a downside to this though.
