  • Excellent hike to do with family! Very manageable and great views even on a cloudy day. Cute little lakes and a very walkable sneaker friendly trail. Can be very busy and parking could be challenging.
  • A beautiful hike in mount Rainier park. We did this 10.5km hike in early August, and the slopes were alive with blue, red and orange flowers, it was a spectacular view. You get to see 6 or 7 lakes throughout the hike (though some are rather small), and the views at the high point are breathtaking, you get to see snow covered mountains in the distance with the lakes in the midpoint. The hike is not difficult, the only part that was somewhat steep was on the way back from Dewey lake, but the rest is fairly gentle. You can easily do it in one morning, but take your time to enjoy the views.
