A very short and flat loop through temperate rain forest with educational signs posted throughout, this informative nature walk is perfect for families with small children and adults looking for a peaceful stroll just outside the park. This nature walk did not make it into previous additions of this book because we simply thought it too easy to be considered a “hike.” Two factors make this trail worthy of inclusion as a best easy day hike. First, other trails in the area that once were attainable for many day hikers have become out of reach due to the permanent closure of the Carbon River Road. Second, unlike many hikes on Mount Rainier, this educational nature walk is perfect for children and people of different abilities.
