Little Ranger Peak Professional Reviews and Guides
"Answer honestly, now: How many of you have heard of Little Ranger Peak before picking up this book? This little-known summit trail offers great early season hiking, and utter solitude for you and your dog. It can also be enjoyed all summer and well into the autumn. The southfacing trail melts out early, but the abundance of deciduous foliage (vine maples, alders, big-leaf maples) makes this is a nice fall color hike. The trail climbs moderately and as it tops the peak, hikers find fantastic views of Mount Rainier and the peaks of the White River valley. But perhaps the best reason to visit Little Ranger Peak is the outstanding opportunity for some wild-land solitude."
