Mt. Rainier-Comet Falls & Van Trump Park

7 miles of hiking • 2500' elevation gain •

This is one of my favorite fall time Mt. Rainier hikes. Rainier unfortnaley was mostly cloud covered but the falls were thundering pretty good. Once past the falls and up toward Van Trump Park the trail becomes snow covered approx. 1/2 mile from V.T. Park. I brought micro spikes but they were not needed.

Mt. Rainier -Eagle Peak

7.2 miles of hiking • 3250' elevation gain •

While the crowds are clammoring up to Paradise this trail offers solitude along with great views. Did not see a single person on the trail all day and besides Rainier looming in your face, Adams, St. Helens & even Hood could be seen from the summit.

American Ridge-Goat Peak

7.23 miles of hiking • 4250' elevation gain •

Goat Peak was the home of a fire lookout so the views @ the summit are 360 degrees & fantastic. Rainier was visible during the climb up but the weather moved in while I was approaching the summit & Rainier disappeared behind a bank of clouds. Nice views of Fife Peak, Goat Rock Wilderness & Bumping Lake. At summit was even hailed on for a spell. Afterward hiked American Ridge for a bit before turning around and descending the way I came up.

Kachess Ridge

6.69 miles of hiking • 2500' elevation gain •

I was expecting better views from this hike as my hiking guide rated it 4 out of 5 stars. Appears since the book was written the trees have grown blocking some of the views.

While the crowds assend Mt. Townsend this overlooked peak is easily accessed from the Tunnel Creek TH. Great views of Mt. Constance, Puget Sound & the mountains of The Brothers Wilderness. We saw only 3 people on the trail along with one bear. Great hike for a hot day.

Upper Lena Lake

16.71 miles of hiking • 4500' elevation gain •

Upper Lena Lake is still pretty much snow covered. Trail is in decent shape. There are a few blow downs you need to crawl under & just a couple of small areas of the trail still covered by snow. The river crossing is pretty much a none issue at the moment.

Mt. Rainier- Summit Climb

9 miles of hiking • 9500' elevation gain • 1 night

Five of us signed up with RMI to attempt this summit climb via the Disappontment Cleaver Route. The hike up to Muir was pea soup with limited visibility due to windy snowy conditions. Muir bunkhouse was full so we camped @ Muir. Very cold & windy. Left Muir @ 2AM under clear skies but cold & windy conditions. Crossed the Cowlitz Glacier & rested at Ingraham Flats. From there crossed the Ingraham Glacier & assended Disappointment Cleaver. Weather moved in @ this point & the climb up to High Camp @ 13,200 ' was quite difficult due to limited visibility caused by the high winds & blowing snow. Rested @ High Camp & from there climbed up to the crater rim @ 14,115'. Due to the continued poor weather conditions, we were unable to descend into the crater & up to Columbia Crest @ 14,410' to sign the summit registry. From there it was the long slog back down to Muir & then to Paradise. The RMI guides told us that this climb was approx. 50% more difficult then a climb made on a fair weather day. That took some of the sting out of not reaching the true summit.

Granite Mtn.

7.54 miles of hiking • 3750' elevation gain •

The last 1/2 mile is snow covered and fairly steep. You may be able to negotiate the summer route but the majority of people were heading straight up the snow field to the summit. I put on crampons but they were not absolutely necessary just made the accent and especially the descent easier. There were 2 pretty good glissade chutes on the way down which were a bit off the main boot track but one could clearly see on the way up to the summit. I think we were pretty much the only party which utilized them though.

Marmot Pass & Beyond

12.16 miles of hiking • 4250' elevation gain •

Solid snow from Camp Mystery to the pass. I put on crampons due the snows consistency but it was possible to assend without. The trail to Buckhorn was pretty much melted out but we chose to climb the ridge to the south to get better views of Warrier Peak & Mt. Constance. We then glissade a good 100 yards down from the ridge to the main trail.

Lake is fairly unremarkable & mostly still covered by snow. There is a fairly large steep snowfield which must be crossed just prior to the lake.

Mt. Teneriffe

8.13 miles of hiking • 4000' elevation gain •

Trail is fairly crowded up to the falls but beyond that crowds are light. Snow begins approx 500' from the summit and while traction devices are not absolutely necessary it did make the final assent and subsequent descent much easier.
