Fagin's Hike of the Week: Grand Park


Mt. Rainier Park and the Grand Park hike is always a great one and going the backway is much shorter than if you started at the Sunrise area. .
Fall is here
Lots of fall colors
Long flat meadow!

Driving directions: Drive state Route 410 about 24 miles east of Enumclaw and just past the viewpoint of Mount Rainier turn right onto Forest Service Road No. 73. Drive 10 miles to sign that says “Eleanor Creek.” There is not a trailhead sign but park on the right and you will see a boot path on the left. Walk a short distance and you will see sign that you have entered the National Park.

Trail stats: 8.5 miles roundtrip (towards the end of the meadow)  and about 1500 foot elevation gain. Here is our track we added some extra wondering. .
