For avid hill climbers, this hike gives you a large dosage of uphill medicine. The trail takes you to the picturesque meadows of Indian Henry’s Hunting Ground. Mount Rainier’s Sunset Amphitheater is visible from the meadows on a clear day, as are Copper and Iron Mountains. This area was named for Indian Henry (Sutelik), the Native American who taught James Longmire about the trails in Mount Rainier.
