The Mt Rainier National Park attracts visitors year round for a variety of activities including snowshoeing, sledding, and cross-country skiing in the Winter and hiking, sight-seeing, and mountain climbing in the Summer. All four seasons offer extraordinary photography opportunities with or without the mountain as the backdrop.
NW Trek is another area favorite and is located about 30 minutes from Ashford. NW Trek is a 723-acre wildlife park that is home to more than 200 North American animals. Take the signature tram tour through the free-roaming area and spot moose, swan, bison, mountain goat, caribou, and more as they wander through forests, wetlands and meadows. Then stroll through the walking area to see the grizzlies, cats, and other forest and wetland critters. Considered by many to be the Pacific Northwest's finest zoo.
Mount Rainier Scenic Railroad is an authentic steam locomotive experience not to be missed! The train will take you on an excursion through the lush forest and river valleys of the Mt. Rainier area. MRSR offers a variety of open window and enclosed coaches pulled by vintage steam locomotives. A great Mount Rainier activity for all ages and levels of mobility
