Mount Rainier National Park
Established in 1899, Mount Rainier National Park encompasses 235,625 acres, 97% of which is designated Wilderness. It includes Mount Rainier, a 14,410-foot peak and active volcano encased in over 35 square miles of snow and ice. The Park contains outstanding examples of old-growth forests and subalpine meadows.
Whether hiking on its flanks, climbing its summit, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing on its slopes, camping along its glacier-fed rivers, photographing wildflower displays in subalpine meadows, or just admiring the view, more than two million people come to enjoy the grandeur and beauty of Mount Rainier each year.
