Mount Beljica Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Too many people think you have to be in the national park to enjoy Mount Rainier. This quaint trail dispels that myth quite effectively. It ambles easily through forest and meadow, passing pretty woodland lakes and climbing to the high vantage point once utilized by professional fire watchers.
Now, lest you ask, the unusual name is truly unique: the name is attributed to two families who climbed to the summit in 1897. The proud fathers of the Mesler and LaWall families pulled the first initial of each of their combined children and created the name: Burgon, Elizabeth, Lucy, Jessie, Isabel, Clara, and Alex. As the trail lies outside the national park, it is dog friendly."
