Communities around Mount Rainier provide gateways to one of the oldest national parks in the United States.
Established in 1899, Mount Rainier National Park provides outdoor fun for everyone, from picnicking, camping and hiking to photography and extreme alpine mountain climbing on its heavily glaciated peaks.
Outside the park, state and national forests host back-country roads and
trails where people enjoy hiking, camping, cross-country and downhill
skiing, snow-shoeing and the gondola at Crystal Mountain.
Communities surrounding the park provide a wealth of accommodations and services to make your visit to Rainier complete.
