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.

Before you leave...

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups 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, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
