The Wonderland Trail
encircling Mount Rainier

 

The South Side:
The trail descriptions are divided up between campsites that are found along the trail, spaced between three and seven miles apart. Don't plan on skipping by three or four of them in one day. The trail is steep: you will gain 20,000 feet over the whole trail, and gains and losses of 3,500 feet a day are common.  It is simply divided this way for easy reference.

Nickel Creek - Box Canyon  1.0 miles

 

Box Canyon  - Maple Creek  3.0 miles

 

Maple Creek - Paradise River  7.0 miles

 

Paradise River - Longmire  4.5 miles
