Paradise Jackson Visitor Center
Snow-capped Mount Rainier anchors 240 miles of hiking trails, ranging from wildflower-field nature walks to icy summit ascents. Stop at the Paradise Jackson Visitor Center for hiking suggestions and info on ranger-led walks. Don’t miss the Grove of the Patriarchs, an island stand of old-growth forest, easily accessed by a short loop trail from the Stevens Canyon entrance. Open weekends only mid-October to January.
