Margaret's Way


Day Hike - Margaret's Way to Debbie's View

Extending the hike to Debbie's View will make the total hike mileage about 7 miles and the total elevation gain about 1625 feet. Margaret's Way is a terrific conditioning hike on a well-built trail that is close in to the city. Debbie's View offers views of Mt. Rainier and the surrounding foothills.
