8:30 AM at Paradise Parking Lot

This is a gorgeous hike with fantastic views of Mt. Rainier and Tatoosh Range. There will be snow, but snowshoes are not needed. Gaiters would be good. I did the hike May 10 and the route is well worn in by this time of year. Those wanting to carpool can meet at South Renton Park and Ride at 6 AM. Let me know by e-mail if you want to carpool or meet at Paradise (Mt. Rainier Pass required at Paradise). If group is strong, has desire, and weather permits we can go higher to Anvil Rock. e-mail questions to Marguerite at
