“This loop provides some of the best views of Mount Rainier around, and a plethora of wildflowers.”— Tom Robson
Family Friendly Explore the subalpine flower fields and breathtaking views of Mount Rainier. Late summer and fall bring an abundant supply of huckleberries.
This easy loop is one of the most popular in the park.

To continue the loop and return to Tipsoo Lake in 1.4 miles, follow the Naches Loop Trail along the west side of Naches Peak.
