“Gain one of the best Mount Rainier views on this very sun-exposed trail.”— Tom Robson
Once on top of the ridge, runners enjoy commanding views of Mount Rainier, the Ohanapecosh Valley and the Cascades. For runners seeking solitude, this is a good trail choice - probably because it can be extremely hot on a sunny summer afternoon.
The camp at Shriner Peak is located near the lookout and offers an incomparable view of Mount Rainier at sunrise. Well worth the effort of waking early! A spring located about one mile back down the trail is the only source of water for this camp.
