This trail is scenic, well maintained, and almost entirely runnable. You pass waterfalls, wildflower meadows, majestic glaciers, old-growth forests, and towering rock formations, all on a 17-mile loop on Mount Rainier’s north face. Streams along the way provide plentiful water that can be treated for drinking.
