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."

Noble Knob is a tricky trail, it fools you into thinking it is much easier than it really is. While it isn't technically difficult, the constant ups and downs of the trail get really tiring after a while; however, the outstanding views of Mount Rainier are so amazing, you won’t mind the slight leg burn. A great choice for hiking with your dog near Mt. Rainier, just remember to bring lots of water because there are no water streams near by and dogs can get quite thirsty (and dusty) on this trail.
