This is a must see on Rainier. An easy walk from the inn for most everyone. A fantastic photo opportunity with lots of wildlife. Look for the marmot colony near by. They are watching you.

Many people who come to Rainier take this hike because it is a paved trail and only about a half mile form the visitor's center. It is certainly ok for strollers and unless mobility is an issue, it's not a tough walk. No need for...More

About .5 miles each way and paved, this makes for an easy stroll for all age groups and for folks with limited mobility. Takes about 10 minutes to get there from the starting point just outside the lodge.
