Mount rainier national park is beautiful. In June there is still about 8 feet of snow in paradise so if you want to see the wild flowers you have to wait til mid July. Hiking was fun and the views of the mountain were beautiful.

Please prepare for bears. Ran into mom and cub at 20 yards coming round bend near white river higher parts, near glacier. Walked towards us. Kids panicked, ran. Had to catch up with them. Two adults stayed and backed off calmly. Bears left trail. Please prepare. We did not. Most hikers coming up didnt mind and continued. But I bet they were prepared. Or experienced. Please prepare.

The drive to Mount Ranier is beautiful and calm. The only issue we had was that it was a cloudy day so we couldn't see the summit. The visitor center was helpful and cozy. Lots of trails of course. The scenery was gorgeous.

We drove a loop around the mountain and had amazing weather so got to see great views! However, we went in mid-June and everything was still frozen/snow covered so some of the places we stopped looks less than picturesque. It was still nice to see. I thought the visitor's center at Paradise was a let down. I normally really enjoy talking to the park employees but was unhappy with the short and snappy advice given by the ranger. One good thing with the early trip was we saw lots of waterfalls with the snowmelt.

we visited here in early june (not a good time) but were un aware of all the road closings and paradise area not accessible. even with this set back the mountain was a special to see. we did have a nice sunny day to drive the road up to the top.

along the way we saw several waterfalls, cascades and some deer. At the top we visited the visitor center, saw the movie in the theater, had a bite to eat in the cafe, and walked a little on the snow to view the peaks. we never did see the top do to cloud and fog cover. but what we did see, we liked. i would set aside the better part of the day to see and explore the area. when weather and road conditions are favorable if you have 2 days that would be better.
