Description

At an elevation of 6,400 feet, Sunrise is the highest point that can be reached by vehicle at Mount Rainier National Park. In summer, mountain meadows abound with wildflowers. On clear summer days Sunrise provides breathtaking views of Mount Rainier, Emmons Glacier, and vibrant wildflower meadows.

Sunrise Point offers nearly 360-degree views of the surrounding valleys, Mount Rainier, and other volcanoes in the Cascade Range, such as Mount Adams. These views and an excellent trail system make Sunrise the second most visited location in the park.

From the Sunrise Trailhead, this short trail traverses along the rim before terminating at Wonderland Trail.
