This trail stays just outside Mount Rainier National Park, meaning it’s one of the few trails with expansive Rainier views that can be enjoyed by dogs. The highlights of the trek are the outstanding views east to the glaciers that cover the west flank of the big volcano. The trail is relatively flat and open, though at times the tread is rough and brushy—maintenance of the trail is a once-in-a-while occurrence. Fortunately, the path is easy to follow and offers wonderfully unique views of Mount Rainier—few people get to see the west face of the mountain from this close.
