This short (.7 miles), flat (20-foot elevation gain) loop trail hits all the major points that make it one of the top must-do trails for families at Mount Rainier:
- It's short.
- It's a full loop.
- It's flat.
- It's accessible year-round (Longmire is nearly always open - must bring tire chains in the winter)
- It's packed full of history (an old cabin, hot springs and more) with signs and plaques describing the importance of the area.
- There are viewpoints galore along the trail.
- There are bathrooms at the start/end point (Longmire Recreation Area)
