2013 NW Chapter Field Trips:

bulletSpray Park in Mount Rainier NP Saturday 10 August 2013

An August hike from Mowich Lake up to Spray Park in Mount Rainier. It is a moderate to strenuous hike of (7 miles round trip with about 1300 feet of elevation gain) to a great alpine environment, with amazing views of Mount Rainier. The upper portion of Spray Park is a natural rock garden with a great variety of alpine plants. This hike will be on Saturday 10 August 2013 to ensure that the trail is snow-free. We will meet at the parking area next to Mowich Lake to Mount Rainier National Park at 930.

Here is a little more info on the trail http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/spray-park

Driving Directions:
From Puyallup, drive 13 miles east on State Route 410 to Buckley. Turn right (south) onto SR 165 and proceed through Carbonado. Just beyond the Carbon River Gorge bridge, bear right onto Mowich Lake Road. Follow the road about 17 miles to its end; the trailhead is at the far end of the Mowich Lake Campground. Recommend that we form carpools.

Note that there is an Entrance fee: $15/car to get into Rainier. At Mowich, you pay this via machine.
