Description

This stunning view of Mount Rainier is one of the park's best; here, you can come face-to-face with the mountain on little more than a simple day hike. As if that weren't enough, the tundra landscape of the mountain is one of Rainier's more unique landscapes, certainly making it one of the highlights of the Sunrise area and possibly all of Rainier.

All-Day Hike: The trail to Burroughs Mountain can be easily accessed from Sunrise.
