Berkeley Park Trail

Berkeley Park Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Berkeley Park may be the best place in the whole Sunrise area to throw yourself down on a patch of earth and simply sit and contemplate your good fortune. This is, after all, one of the richest wildflower gardens in the world.

By late July, when the heavy mantle of snow has finally pulled away, Berkeley Park explodes in a rainbow of color. Other meadowlands around the mountain likewise boast of bright wildflower carpets, of course. But Berkeley, for some reason, seems special. Perhaps it’s the north-facing bowl of the park that keeps Mount Rainier largely out of the picture, forcing you to focus on the splendor underfoot. Or perhaps it’s because this park gets fewer visitors than the other broad swathes of green in the area. Regardless, Berkeley Park is a special place that’s easily reached by folks looking for a moderate day hike."
