Trail of Shadows at Mount Rainier

  • 55210 238th Ave E
  • Ashford, WA 98304-9751
  • (360) 569-2211

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)
