Everyone comes to Mount Rainier National Park to see one of the tallest peaks in the United States, but while visiting, the Grove of the Patriarchs is a must-see. This stroll along the Ohanapecosh River runs through a thick forest full of huge trees. Some of these trees are over 1000 years old!
This shaded, easy hike is fantastic for families with kids or adults of all ages. It even includes a suspension bridge, a boardwalk and a place to hang out and relax along the river.
If you are headed to Mount Rainier National Park, make sure you take the time to visit this incredible concentration of giant trees!
Mount Rainier National Park is a hiker’s dream with over 260 miles of maintained trails. Trails range from easy nature trails suitable for everyone to strenuous, backcountry routes. The most famous of these is the ambitious 93-mile Wonderland Trail, which encircles Mount Rainier! The Wonderland Trail should only be attempted by the seasoned backcountry hiker, but you’re sure to find at least a few trails that are just right for you!
We spent two full days exploring and hiking in Mount Rainier National Park, and highly recommend you plan a trip to this stunning park.
