Waterfall

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.

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
