Day Hike - Grand Park (Mount Rainier)

We hiked to Grand Park VIA Lake Eleanor

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • It seems that there has been recent trail maintenance work.  We did not encounter any downed trees on the trail at all.  No snow on the trail but there are still sections that have standing water and muddy.

    The avalanche lilies are almost neat the end of their bloom but it seems the rest of the flowers in the main Grand Park meadow are just getting started.  I would guess in one or two weeks the meadow will be in full bloom.

    Mosquitoes were bad from the trailhead until about the first meadow.
