    Directions to Trailhead

    The hike to Shriner Peak is an 13.7 km lightly trafficked trail in Mount Rainier National Park. This under-appreciated hike offers a wonderful view of Mount Rainier, a solid workout, and a more peaceful trail than you tend to find in the park. With some sweaty switchbacks leading to a wide lookout and plenty of wildflowers to enjoy, you’ll love this adventure.

    Route Description for Shriner Peak Hike

    The Shriner Peak hike is an under-appreciated trek in Mount Rainier National Park, offering a less-busy trail to a fantastic viewpoint over Mount Rainier. This trail is a good workout, but it’s very exposed to the hot sun, so we recommend hiking it early in the morning or on cooler days and bringing lots of water. Come prepared with water, sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses. It’s a great option for fall when the leaves start to change!

    From the trailhead, you’ll immediately start gaining elevation. You’ll hike parallel to Panther Creek, then enter an old burn area. Cross this stretch and then begin a series of switchbacks to the ridge under the peak.

    At 4.0 km, you’ll get a fantastic view of Mount Rainier. Another 1.2 km later, you’ll be able to see Shriner Lake. Complete the final few switchbacks to the summit, from where you’ll be able to see Mount Rainier, Little Tahoma, Sourdough Ridge, and much more. Soak up this hard-earned panorama before retracing your steps.
