Forest Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The good news is you’ll have unmatched views nearly every step along this trail. The bad news is that the trail skirts high above the road for its entire length, so on busy days, you’ll hear traffic noises. But if you simply tell yourself the sound of wheels on pavement is really just the humming of the wind in the trees, you’ll soon forget the road is there and focus instead on the magnificence of your surroundings.

Grand vistas to the north, east, south, and west await you here, so even if you can hear the tourist traffic on its way to and from Sunrise, you’ll still have a great adventure—and you’ll find your camera full of some of the best pictures of Mount Rainier you’ll ever get."
