Norse Peak has excellent views of Mt. Rainier and surrounding area from the site of the old lookout. In fall, Elk may be heard bugling, mountain goats sightings are possible. The trail is open for hiking at time of posting, if an early snowfall changes that I will find the best nearby hike rather than cancel.
