With camping opportunities and trails leading to beautiful views of Mount Rainier, the Snoquera area on Highway 410 was a prime candidate for WTA's Trails Rebooted work. We envision robust hiking opportunities here that expand hiker's options as they are searching for trails around Mount Rainier National Park.
Recent fires and an ongoing landscape analysis by the Forest Service offer a ripe opportunity to think decades into the future about what recreation could look like for this region. Stay tuned for more on this developing area.
