Alta Vista and Panorama Point Trail

Alta Vista and Panorama Point Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Take your pick. Walk a short but steep paved trail to Alta Vista overlooking Paradise Valley. Or continue on a steep rugged trail to Panorama Point and a magnificent view of Mount Rainier.

A network of paved trails leaves from the visitors center. Climb the cement steps and follow the trail through the meadows. Children can look back at the Tatoosh Range from this perspective to compare it with later views. Pass the first trail for Alta Vista at about ½ mile; it is extremely steep. The meadows are a flower lover’s paradise. The number of varieties of flowers that bloom here during the season runs into the hundreds."
