This trail stays right along the edge of timber line, making it one of the most spectacular routes for snowshoers (and cross-country skiers) in Mount Rainier National Park. The trail provides a wonderful experience in a winter forest, the chance to visit frozen alpine lakes, and subalpine meadows in which to play and soak up the scenery.

This is another great Mt. Rainier trail! I just can't say enough about Rainier!!! Reflection Lake is a very fun hike/snowshoe. It's a bit steep in spots, but worth every ounce of effort to witness the spectacular views of Paradise and Rainier. The lake itself is beautiful and during the summer months, you will most likely find photographers snapping bold photos of the peak reflecting off the lake. Gorgeous!
