Beginner Snowshoe - Paradise

Due to Government (partial) shutdown, the road to Paradise was closed at Longmire (per Mt. Rainier NP web site). Changed location to Crystal Mountain. Couldn't easily find route to go uphill from parking lot, eventually did however. Trail (road actually) occasionally encountered snowmobiles pulling skiers and small sno=cats with people able to step aside without problem. Found side trail on way back and went out about 1/2 mile to a great overview looking down valley. Nice day without stormy weather.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Plenty of snow, condition of snow was soft.

Started trip in parking lot 'C', eventually found way up the side of ridge.
