Mount Rainier is the highest volcanic peak in the contiguous United States coming in at a height of 14,410 feet. It has the largest alpine glacial system outside of Alaska and the world's largest volcanic glacier cave system. Visible from across the region, Mount Rainier shapes the physical environment and is a key element to the identity of the Pacific Northwest.
Difficulty Level: Intermediate-Advanced

No prior backpacking experience is required; however, participants should be in relatively good shape and be prepared to hike many miles a day at high elevations with a loaded pack.
Mount Rainier is the Ancestral homeland of the Cowlitz, Muckleshoot, Nisqually, Puyallup, Squaxin Island, Yakama, and Coast Salish people. As we recreate on these lands, we seek to steward it well through protection, preservation, and care in an effort to honor these tribes culture and ties to the mountain.
