This short hike travels steeply through beautiful meadows overlooking the Paradise area. This hike is excellent for children. It is short and scenic and gives you a little taste of Mount Rainier National Park. If you take this hike in July or August, an abundance of wildflowers will line the trails. Please preserve the fragile meadows where the flowers grow by staying on the trail. Expect to see a lot of people on this popular trail.
