You may want to coordinate carpooling from the Martin Way Park & Ride.

Enjoy a midweek trip to Reflection Lakes with all the beauty of winter but none of the crowds.

Depending on snow conditions we'll take either the Wonderland Trail up to Reflection Lakes and the road back, or go there and back on the road.

Check the Mt. Rainier forecast to see what the weather will likely be. We'll be at around the same elevation as Paradise.

Once we get to the big lake we'll decide whether to keep going to more of the lakes or head back to the cars.
