  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 6.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 900 ft

We will meet at Longmire parking area, behind the Nisqually Inn and General Store, at 8:30 AM. We will wait for the gate opening and then proceed to the Narada Falls parking area.  A Mt. Rainier Park pass is required for all vehicles, and chains must be carried in all vehicles as well.s

I will be driving a dark-ish red Toyota Tundra (with crew cab & canopy) for Identification.

Covid restrictions apply, Fully vaccinated individuals only. I may chose to verify vaccination status. (Note: I'm fully vaccinated and 'boosted')

We will follow the 'regular' route, perhaps circling Reflection Lake and returning over Mazama Ridge. Trip will be approximately 6 miles, 900 feet elevation gain.

This trip may be cancelled due to weather conditions, park opening, or an alternate destination may be chosen on short notice.
