The Mountaineers Books Day Hiking: Mount Rainier 2nd Edition
With old-growth evergreens, wildflower meadows, enchanting wildlife, raging rivers, and sparkling lakes set against a backdrop of ice flows, gaping crevasses, and crumbling sheer rock walls, the Mount Rainier National Park is a special sanctuary for locals and visitors alike. This all new second edition of Day Hiking: Mount Rainier includes short and easy hikes as well as longer and more challenging options. The guide features 80 hikes in, and just outside, the national park with detailed topo route maps and full-color photos throughout. There are charts to help hikers of all levels find the right hike for their mood and time, as well as length and elevation data, clear driving and parking instructions, and trail descriptions written in the author’s encouraging and humorous voice.
