    Directions to Trailhead

    The South Puyallup Trail is a 4.7 km lightly trafficked trail in Mount Rainier National Park that is rated as easy. This trail is most often used to access the South Puyallup River Camp as part of a longer backpacking trip as the trailhead is inaccessible directly from a road, but if you’re in the area, it makes a pleasant, moderate walk on its own.
