46.932947,-121.863545 - Search Nearby - Added by Andy Merkel

A wonderful, yet somewhat quiet place in Mt. Rainier National Park!

No need to for an entire day hike to enjoy wonderful reflections, crystal clear water, and beautiful scenery a few hundred feet from the parking lot! 

Park at the Mowich Lake Campground parking lot and follow signs for the Wonderland trail. You will begin your hike on the south side of the lake and follow it clockwise up until you start to ascend onto the Tolmie Peak Trail. This is approximately a 2 mile out and back trail from the main beach at the lake.

You will find many people swimming, hiking, posing for photos, and watching as the colors light up the surrounding mountains. 

Mowich Lake Road is closed during the Winter, so plan accordingly!
