Route Description for Ipsut Pass Hike
The hike to Ipsut Pass is a quick, scenic trip in Mount Rainier National Park. While the walk alongside Mowich Lake and the views from the pass are enjoyable, many people choose to continue to Eunice Lake to extend their trip.
From the Mowich Lake trailhead, walk along the lefthand side of the lake on Wonderland Trail. The trail will eventually break away from the lake, gaining light elevation as it approaches the pass. At the pass, the trail branches to the left and right; if you wish to continue to Eunice Lake, take the trail on the left and prepare for more considerable elevation gain. If the pass is your objective, retrace your steps to the lakeshore.
Getting to the Ipsut Pass Hike Trailhead
