Mount Rainier National Park is an incredible area, with some of the most stunning topography and pristine wilderness in the lower 48 states.

We've compiled a list of local trails around the Nisqually entrance to Rainier National Park that are great to visit in the winter. Trails without the long lines and entrance fees. And best of all, they're all dog friendly!
