GUIDED HIKING AT CRYSTAL
Venture out into new territory and discover the hidden gems of Crystal Mountain. The adventure begins with a ride up Washington State’s only gondola, climbing over 2400 feet in 13 minutes to the summit where you will stand face-to-face with Mount Rainier. Your expert guide will lead you down the Crystal Mountain Trail for a scenic hike alongside wildflowers and major peaks, while sharing facts about the local flora and fauna. This afternoon hike is the ideal challenge for those who want to avoid the strenuous uphill and take in the views.
Bring a water bottle and some snacks in your pack. Wear flexible pants or shorts, multiple layers of clothing and sturdy shoes, hiking boots are highly recommended. The mountain weather can change dramatically and quickly, so you will want to add or remove layers as the mountain demands. Sunscreen and sunglasses/hat are also good choices for enjoying the alpine outdoors.
Leashed and well-behaved dogs are permitted. Limit of 2 dogs per class. Please let us know ahead of time if you plan to bring your pet.
