Carbon River Road Trail

Carbon River Road Trail

2.3 Miles Easy

Mt. Rainier National Park
Ashford, Washington

Carbon River rd used to be open to the public beyond this parking area, but from what I understand, it's now a trail due to road damage back in ~2007. The Carbon River rd trail is used to access various trails along this section of Mt. Rainier National Park like the Rain Forest and Old Mine trails.

There's a National Park fee for parking, so make sure to pay before you hit the trail.

In late Winter and early Spring, you'll likely hear and see waterfalls through the trees - though, I could not find any trails that lead to them. The trail is littered with massive ancient trees, but I forgot to take any decent pictures of them. Regardless, they're definitely worth seeing. Also, plenty of deer to be found along this trail.
