West Wonderland Trail

West Wonderland Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This outstanding backpack trip covers the entire west side of the Wonderland Trail, which has been coined the “piecrust” by previous hikers.

This hike, starting at Mount Rainier’s largest mountain lake, Mowich Lake, travels through a multitude of natural wonders. Such attractions include pebbly river valleys, subalpine meadows, and close-up views of Mount Rainier’s western glaciers."
