“A manageable out-and-back showcasing multiple lakes and panoramic views from atop Tolmie Peak.”— Brian Smith
The Tolmie Peak Trail contours around the mountain's southern flank below Lake Eunice before ascending steeply through a series of switchbacks. The trail ascends through gradually thinning coniferous forest. After about a half-mile, the trail levels out as it emerges at Lake Eunice. Take a few moments to enjoy the lake's pristine, picturesque waters as well as the craggy slopes above the lake. Some will choose to turn around here but the trail continues to the summit of Tolmie Peak.
The last mile from Eunice Lake to Tolmie Peak Lookout is steep but well worth the effort! Views of the lake below and Mt. Rainier to the south abound as you run uphill. After a final switchback, the trail trends eastward and the grade lessens. At the summit, prepare to be awestricken by panoramic views of the pristine, lush surroundings.
