"Van Trump Park, named for the first man to reach the summit of Mount Rainier, stretches across the ridges above Comet Falls. Vast wildflower fields comprise the parklands, and these fields are popular with foraging deer and mountain goats. Van Trump Park requires a good deal of effort to reach, but once it’s attained, the rewards are boundless. Grand views accompanied by a plethora of local flora and fauna create a truly special wilderness experience." Read more
