Touted as one of the most spectacular hikes in Mount Rainier National Park, Ohanapecosh Park does not disappoint as an amazing four-day backpacking trip. Many have trumpeted Ohanapecosh Park and Indian Bar as the best hike in the park. It very well might live up to its reputation. The trail begins in dense forest and ascends into subalpine forest, then alpine terrain, even crossing snowfields. The hike affords awesome views of Mount Rainier, fields of wildflowers, alpine lakes, and small ice caves.
