Family Friendly The trail passes through the forest to Eunice Lake, then climbs to the Tolmie Peak fire lookout for views of Mount Rainier and the surrounding areas.

Description

To access the Tolmie Peak Trail, take the Wonderland Trail from the south side of Mowich Lake. The trail contours around the mountain's southern flank below Lake Eunice before ascending steeply through a series of switchbacks. The trail ascends through gradually thinning coniferous forest. After about a half-mile, the trail levels out as it emerges at Lake Eunice. Take a few moments to enjoy the lake's pristine, picturesque waters as well as the craggy slopes above the lake. Some will choose to turn around here, but the trail continues to the summit of Tolmie Peak.

The last mile from Eunice Lake to Tolmie Peak Lookout is steep, but well worth the effort! Views of the lake below and Mt. Rainier to the south abound as you hike uphill. After a final switchback, the trail trends eastward and the grade lessens. At the summit, prepare to be awestricken by panoramic views of the pristine, lush surroundings.

Flora & Fauna

The subalpine meadows and shore around Eunice Lake are easily damaged. Try to minimize your impact on this delicate environment by hiking only on the constructed trails and resting or picnicking on rocks near the trail.
