Join us for our 5th annual Black Friday hike as we choose to #optoutside by going snowshoeing at Paradise on Mount Rainier. We will snowshoe above Paradise into the broad Edith Creek Basin. The 1/2-mile hike into the basin has 200 feet of elevation gain and makes a good destination for beginning snowshoers or for those wishing for an easy snowshoe hike. To challenge yourself a little more while taking in some amazing views continue on up the basin and merge up with the junction to Panorama Point, then complete the loop back down to the Paradise Visitor Center. This loop (see map) will get your heart pumping with its 1,000 feet of elevation over the course of the 2.4-mile loop. If a winter storm warning is in effect for this area, we will change our Black Friday hike to another location.
Registration for this hike will open up on Sunday, November 24 at 10:15am.
