A steep climb to a lookout offers spectacular views of the “Four Sisters”: Mount Rainier, Mount Adams, Mount Hood, and Mount St. Helens. This is a very tough, steep hike. The steepness, combined with little shade and limited water sources, might make this hike seem undesirable, but we can not emphasize enough how incredible the view is from the top of Shriner Peak. You can see the whole east side of Mount Rainier National Park and many other Cascades rising in the distance.
