This short loop around Reflection Lakes offers a great view of the Tatoosh Range. This is an easy day hike that explores the area around Reflection Lakes, possibly the most photographed spot on Mount Rainier. On a clear day you can see the entire mountain mirrored in the still waters of these aptly-named lakes. The High Lakes Trail leaves the lakeside and follows Mazama Ridge, gaining just enough elevation to afford a view of the Tatoosh Range.
