8/21 CANCELLED BY LEADER. Panoramic breathtaking 360 degree views abound along this trail. They very aptly named this place "Paradise!" We will start by going up the Alta Vista Trail to connect with the Skyline Trail, and stop for lunch at Panorama Point. We will then loop around the High Skyline Trail (not crossing the steep snow patch on the lower Skyline Loop). We will connect with the Golden Gate Trail on the way down, and I'm hoping the wildflowers will still be in bloom here. We will pass by Myrtle Falls on the way back as well. Mt. Rainier entrance fee per vehicle or park pass (leader has a pass). Sign up with leader preferred, or 253-970-2719 before 9:30pm please.
