Hike around and along an emerald wedge lodged beneath the massive Tahoma Glacier and set between two deep canyons of glacier-fed, cloudy, milky, and turbulent creeks. Flowers sway above the moraine and dislodging ice, while herds of mountain goats graze on succulent tubers on precarious ledges. This short loop encompasses a diverse array of forest, mountain, and meadow and takes you to two of the least hiked trails in Mount Rainier National Park.
