Mt. Rainier National Park Tours and Activities
One of the oldest national parks in the United States, Mt. Rainier National Park was established in 1899 to preserve the wilderness surrounding Mount Rainier, an active volcano standing 14,410 feet (4,392 meters) above sea level. Encompassing 369 square miles (956 square kilometers) of old-growth forests and other protected land, it’s a must-do for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. The park draws locals from Seattle and visitors from around the globe who come to hike among wildflowers meadows, take in the glacial scenery of the Pacific Northwest, and spot wildlife such as elk, black bears, and mountain goats.
