The Rain Forest Trail at Mt. Rainier National Park, WA, is an easy 0.3 mile loop hike located on the northwest boundary of Mt. Rainier National Park.
It's extremely short, but it's a really nice loop trail that gives you a quick peek into Rainier's rain forests.
You'll find that most of the trail is made up of large wooden planks to keep you off the wet ground.
Along the east side of the trail you may find a waterfall hidden in the back; however, I'm not sure if it exists throughout the entire year or if it only exists during the spring or after a heavy rainfall.
Also beware that there's a parking fee for the park and dogs are not allowed on any of the trails within the park's boundaries.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄
Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
