Intermediate Snowshoe - Mazama Ridge (Mount Rainier)

Not enough visibility to see Tahoma, but still a great day of snowshoeing!

  • Road suitable for all vehicles

The Longmire-Paradise gate didn't open until 9 AM and roads were dry so an early meet-up time was not necessary.

Snow level is unseasonably low for this time of year.

Narada Falls-Paradise-Mazama Ridge-Reflection Lakes-Stevens Rd-Narada Falls loop. The weather was generally mild - mostly light snow showers and light winds. There were no existing tracks from the north end of Mazama Ridge all the way down to Reflection Lakes, so some extra navigation was involved to keep us as close to the trail as possible.

A great day to tromp around with  nine fun adventurers.
