The Wonderland Trail

Envisioned in early 1900’s, The Wonderland Trail took construction in 1907 by park rangers. Each year trail crews extended it farther and the Boy Scouts became involved. In 1915, trail crews worked overtime to finally complete the trail in early August of that year.

Today the trail is a 93 mile loop and much more scenic than the original 130-140 miles. It is know as one of the more difficult trails to backpack on due to the nature of of its topography of rolling hills carved by glacial activity.

Challenging Trail

What makes this trail so challenging is not just the miles but the 50,000 feet of ascent and decent.

My name is Lisa Elliott. I’ve lived my entire life in the PNW home of one of the most beautiful settings in the United States if not the entire world.

Burroughs Three, Sunrise

It’s been said John Muir took one look at Mt. Rainier and immediately suggested it become the fifth National Park.

This past year I made a plan during a pandemic to hike around the mountain and I did it.
