Mount Rainier National Park is among the most majestic places in the entire Pacific Northwest.

Not only does Mount Rainier reign above the entire region as the highest peak in the PNW, but it’s also one of the wildest and most remote areas in the lower 48 states. More than 90 percent of the park is designated wilderness.

The mountain has numerous glaciers, alpine meadows, and cascading waterfalls, and its slopes teem with wildlife. There’s a robust trail network around the mountain, all of which are tethered together by the world-famous Wonderland Trail.

Mount Rainier National Park is home to jaw-dropping views at every turn. The namesake mountain is magnificent in and of itself, but it’s also a neighbor to other extraordinary mountains including the Cascade peaks of Mount St. Helens, Mount Adams, and Mount Hood. The entire area is full of volcanic marvels.

Whether you’re traveling toward Mount Rainier to visit the park or one of the nearby ski resorts, or you’re simply looking for a tranquil respite from the civilized world, there’s no doubt you can find an amazing place to stay.
