The hike to Berkeley Park is an 11.3mi moderately difficult out and back trip in Mount Rainier National Park. This hike is a must-do in wildflower season when the meadows of the park are awash in color! If you can, try to come early for sunrise. Bring bug spray on this hike.

Berkeley Park Trail Description

The hike to Berkeley Park is a true winner. The wildflowers are divine, the mountain vistas are unforgettable, and the park is a place you just won’t want to leave. You’ll hike through a bit of a stark stretch to get here, but it’s entirely worth it.

The trail begins from the Sunrise Visitor Center. Take the large stairs and hike to a ridgeline where you’ll be able to see into Huckleberry Valley. You’ll turn left onto Sourdough Ridge Trail. Hike 1.1mi to a 5-way junction, where you’ll continue straight on.

You’ll briefly hike on the Wonderland Trail, descending for 1.3mi to another junction. Go straight again here. You’ll begin to descend into Berkeley Park, and you can enjoy the lush meadows, the marmots, and the gorgeous mountain backdrop all the way to Berkeley Camp, where you can turn around and retrace your steps.
