Mount Rainier, Washington's highest mountain has a summit elevation of 14,411 feet it can be seen from all over the state and on a clear day, from as far away as Portland, Oregon and Victoria, B.C.

Located about 2 hours from Seattle and 2.5 hours from Portland, Mount Rainier National Park is Washington State's #1 visitor destination and is a favorite day trip for the locals.

Enjoy Mount Rainier year round: Longmire, Paradise, and Ohanapecosh are popular destinations and can be launching points for more exploration of the National Park. A multitude of hiking trails and scenic drives are scattered throughout the park.

The "peak" wildflowers bloom at Mount Rainier is dependent on weather conditions, and is difficult to predict, but usually mid July to early August is a good bet. Visit the rangers in the park and ask about the best trails.
