Trail Information


In and around the town of Greenwater all the way up to the entrance of "Mt. Rainier National Park" and the Crystal Mountain Ski area have a network of inter-connecting Forest Service roads that can make for a day of fun and adventure. While most of these roads are not true "Jeep Trails", they do present some spectacular scenery with their stunning views of Mt. Rainier and surrounding mountain valleys. These roads are also a great way for a novice to get to know their vehicle if they are new to the sport or a way to just explore and see what lays around the next corner. The spring flowers are really nice and most bloom well into mid-summer. There are dispersed camping spots all along these roads that are free to use though you can expect no facilities.

This forest service road is closed for the season and there is a washout at waypoint 4. Hoping maybe the forest service can get the funding needed to reopen next summer.
