The Wonderland Trail wraps around Mount Rainier, delving into every ecological zone on the mountain. This section carries you through several of those zones, including low-elevation old-growth forests, rich riparian zones, and higher-altitude fir and hemlock forests. You’ll also explore an old forest fire site and check out one of the park’s established backcountry camps. It’s a wonderful route for early-summer exploration. Note: Check with the ranger before heading out to make sure the footbridge across Kautz Creek is intact, especially if you are doing an early-season hike.
