5 miles, 500 feet elevation gain.

Trip description

This is a double feature trip that will visit the White River area off Highway 410 just northeast of Mount Rainier National Park. Part One will involve a drive up a steep forest road and then a short hike that leads to a historic lookout cabin at over 5200 feet in altitude. The road actually goes to the lookout, but we'll get out and walk a 0.6-mile trail to get a little exercise and "earn" the views. Suntop Lookout was built in the 1930's, and has recently undergone upgrades to make it accessible to anyone. Volunteers often play host to visitors up there, and can talk about the fire-watchers of the past who were stationed at Suntop. Since the lookout hike is short, we'll add a Part Two, doing an easy hike back down in the valley along White River on the Skookum Flats trail. It features some beautiful forest, plenty of river views, and a small waterfall.

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