The Wonderland Trail is a 93 mile trail which forms a loop around the base of Mount Rainier in Washington state.
The trail was completed in 1915 and gives hikers great views of Mount Rainier, as well as some of the 25 glaciers on the mountain. The trail has quite a bit of “up and down” and the it traverses the spines of the mountain. Typically, there are over 200 hikers who complete the entire loop each year.
Our Favorite Wonderland Trail Photos
Mt. Rainier Nat’l Park is pretty incredible. One can see Mt. Rainier (of course), beautiful wildflower meadows, glaciers, excellent rock formations, killer views, and more in the course of the 93 mile hiking loop. SweetPea enjoyed her first experience backpacking in Washington, and Beardoh! was glad to be back. There are many people who do the Wonderland Trail numerous times, and it is quite understandable. It’s a great walk with lots of variety. It is really quite accessible, even from a car…if you live in the northwest, you have little excuse not to go check out the park.
