  • The road up was not scary or difficult, and the views are incredible! Well worth a driving up to admire the vistas.

  • The pictures will never do this place justice. we went on a 5 mile hike and we saw so many different kinds of scenery. Even when we’ve been in the middle of July, we’ve come across snow banks! The weather can change really quickly so just make sure you’re prepared. Any visit here will be well worth it!!
  • Epic spot to view the sunrise in the Mount Rainier National Park. The place has good views of the mountains and Mount Rainier. One can just park the car in the parking lot and view the amazing views it has to offer from the comfort of the car. The place is closest to the city compared to other visitor centers so expect lot of crowd and traffic. Best time to visit would be in the summers around 4-5pm when most of the folks are leaving the park. You can also spot marmots and other wildlife near the area. Lot of hiking options in and around Sunrise visitor center ranging from easy to difficult as well as overnight hikes. Camping is not allowed and the visitor center has all the basic amenities for a day trip.
