You start low, strolling up a deeply forested river valley, but end up in broad meadows with stellar views of Mount Rainier. The trail gets very little hiking pressure, so you’re almost certain to have the route to yourself. The trail parallels the highway, but most of the way, the road is well out of both sight and hearing of the trail. Look for weasels and martens along the river—as well as dippers and other water-loving birds.
