Rampart Ridge Trail

Rampart Ridge Trail Professional Review and Guide

"One of the few hikes that are snow free in June, this short but steep hike up to Rampart Ridge affords you splendid views of Eagle Peak, Mount Rainier, and the Nisqually River Valley. The trail takes you through a quiet, dense forest to two viewpoints offering the possibility of viewing a variety of flora and fauna.

This hike is great for people who like to climb hills, enjoy great scenery, and need a hike that is snow-free in June. In less than 2 miles the trail takes you up 1,200 feet and allows you to peer into the valley you just ventured from, as well as the valley on the other side of Rampart Ridge."

This is a great hike, there are lots of fir trees. I saw very few birds and animals, it is a gorgous area. The lookout is amazing, Eagle Rock looks incedible! The hike isnt very hard, a little elevation gain but anyone could do it. I didnt it in Febuary and there was very little snow, it was nice.
