When the snow flies at Rainier, its your chance to explore a section of the Wonderland in a new way. This section of the Wonderland Trail, leaving from Longmire and heading to Cougar Rock Campground, offers a relatively safe moderate snowshoeing experience, and a nice summertime loop, too!

Known as the South Puyallup Trail, this access point to the Wonderland Trail is a connector 1.7 miles long that wends its way through a mature forest with trees ranging between 100 to 1000 years old. The variety of ecosystems make this hike an alluring one: visitors start in the lower elevations, surrounded by western redcedar, Douglas fir, yew and western hemlock. But as you climb, you'll see Pacific silver fir, western white pine, noble fir, and the rare Alaska yellow cedar.
