Green Trails #269 Mount Rainier West A two day backpack to some of the best out-of-the-way parks and high ridges of the Wonderland (and in prime huckleberry season!). We will hike in via Kautz Creek and hike out via S Puyallup trail, or hike in and out on S Puyallup trail, depending on the preference of the group. Overnight will be at the South Puyallup River group camp. With the daily distance and significant daily elevation gain this trip is best for well-conditioned backpackers with gear and experience to pack light. Weather is always unpredictable around The Mountain so you will need layers, rain protection for self and gear, and warm non-cotton clothing. We'll connect closer to the trip date to discuss potential to share tents or other gear, and to make arrangements for meeting place(s) and carpools. A gear list can be provided on request.
