Wonderland Trail (Mt Rainier) 3 night hike August 2, 3, 4

Post by orElse » May 21st, 2019, 7:59 am

Hello hikers, i obtained a Wonderland trail permit for a group of 5 visiting from Germany early August. Unfortunately, their travel plans fell through.

The itinerary is below

Entry trailhead:
Paradise https://www.google.com/maps/place/Parad ... 121.735661

8/2 • Olallie Creek Camp
8/3 • White River Walk-in Camp
8/4 • Mowich Lake Walk-in Camp

Exit trailhead: Sunrise
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Sunri ... 121.642959

I am intent on doing the hike myself but i offer 1 or more of the other 4 spots to anyone who wants to experience a "bucket list" backpacking experience.

I am an experienced day hiker with a good fitness level but i am patient with hiking at slower speeds (My wife will attest to that:-) . Self-paced hikers or solo hikers are welcome too. Primarily i am hoping for someone to join up and help with the transportation by meeting at Sunrise trailhead with both vehicles and then sharing a ride to Paradise and then back to Paradise on the 5th for vehicle pick up. We can hike as a group or not, i am flexible.

If you are interested or need more information you can send me a private message or just reply to this post and i will provide my contact info :)

Cheers,

John E.

I dont know the mileage, but wouldnt it be better exiting at Longmire?

Are you going to backtrack from Mowich Lake? Sunrise is between White River and Mowich.
