Begin or continue your journey on Mount Rainier's iconic Wonderland Trail. This section of trail takes you around the southwest side of the mountain through some of the most stunning views in the park. Climb up and down ridges, over creeks, and through meadows on your way to Devil's Dream Camp.

Begin from Longmire. Be sure to stop by the visitor center to gather all the information you need and to say hi to the nice park rangers. The trail starts just across the street. It starts quickly, climbing right up Rampart Ridge. Reach the top at Cougar Rock, and follow the Wonderland Trail left for .2 miles then right over the ridge.

Descend into Kautz Creek and cross it. Pyramid Creek Camp is between Kautz and Pyramid Creeks. Stop to chat with others attempting the Wonderland. Quickly begin to climb again as you push the last distance towards Devil's Dream Camp between Satulick and Iron Mountains. Squaw Lake is just off the trail on Devil's Dream Creek, and from camp you can enjoy views of the whole park.
