Full description
Embark on an adventurous day out on the Three Burroughs Hike in Mount Rainier National park. The trail starts from the Sunrise Visitor Center and quickly climbs to a ridge where on a clear day you'll see two more of Washington's volcanoes: Glacier Peak and Mount Baker.  

Continue along the trail on past Frozen Lake and watch for the resident mountain goats in the meadows above and below you. The trail continues up across two snowfields to the Second Burroughs where Mount Rainier will appear in front of you in all its glory. Enjoy a pause for a provided lunch and take in the views.

The trail is situated at 6,500 feet on the mountain and is not for the faint of heart. Choose to turn back at 4, 6 and 9 miles if need be, depending on your physical condition. The trail is not technical and no special climbing skills are required, however, altitude can affect people differently, so the trail is situated to accommodate your personal needs. The hike is limited to small group sizes to allow for these personal accommodations.
