High Rock Lookout Professional Review and Guide

"When your spirits need a lift or you simply want to spend some time with front-row views of Mount Rainier, climb to the High Rock Lookout. The lookout tower itself is a historical relic from years gone by, when rangers were stationed here to keep an eye out for devastating storms. Around you, marmots crash out on the rocky drop-offs, peaks are in every direction, and peacefulness abides on one of Washington’s grandest peaks.

The “High Rock” perch near Mount Rainier holds one of the last fire lookouts in the area. The views are jaw-dropping in every in thirty-one days by drilling steel pillars deep into the rock and fastening four strong direction, and the rock under your feet is warm and welcoming in summer months."
