Hike 7/30 Glacier Basin - Mount Rainier

Sorry, this trip is full. Contact Andy to be added to the waiting list

7 miles, 1600 feet elevation gain.

Trip description

This trail gives you the chance to follow in the footsteps of climbers who are heading up from White River Campground to ascend Rainier's 2nd most popular route. But you don't have to go to 14,400 feet to reap the scenic rewards in this area. Glacier Basin, true to its name, sits at the foot of the small Inter Glacier, and features colorful alpine meadows that blend into the rocky and icy alpine terrain above. The trail is excellent quality, and ascends steadily but gradually, making the 1600 feet of elevation go somewhat easier than you would expect. Mountain goats, marmots, and pikas are frequently seen.

  • 90 US dollars
  • Meet at Everett Station Park & Ride Lot B. Look for large white passenger van.
