    • mothballed ships

      Bremerton Jun 28, 2014 at 7:03 AM

      Is it possible to see the mothballed ships even if from a distance. We are driving from Port Townsend to Seatac to turn in a rental car. Do we need the car or would it be better to take the ferry from seattle without the car? Our main focus is the Turner Joy and seeing the carriers.

      Dog friendly hikes or attractions ?

      Washington State Jul 15, 2014 at 12:10 PM

      We're thinking about driving there next year but wondering how to find dog friendly hikes ( we like hiking up mountains , don't want to stay on paved trails) since most of the NPs there don't allow dogs on trails.
      Also beaches, restaurants, and other places you can take a dog to, plus any good kennels for day boarding.

    • 3 days in the park

      by aarkof Online Now Jul 17, 2013 at 5:34 PM

      Hello. I unexpectedly got 5 days of vacation, so I didn't have any time for planning. Can anybody please recommend me the route and places to see/visit/stay in the Mt. Rainier NP? So 1st day and last day I'm flying in/out of Seattle (or should it be Portland)? It leaves me 3 full days to visit the park. I want to rent a car and drive through the scenic places, having 2-3 hour hikes here and there taking lots of pictures and enjoying the scenery. It'd be great if someone who is familiar with this area could recommend me:
      - Road numbers to take
      - Where to stop overnight (hotel/motel, not campground)
      - Most scenic 2-3 hour hikes
      - Places to stop - vista points

      Thanks a lot in advance

    • Swimming/wading

      by BigRed78 Online Now Jul 11, 2013 at 12:58 PM

      We are planning a trip next week (first trip to Mt. Rainier!) and I'd like to know if there are any particularly good spots to get out and wander into/alongside a creek? Just wading around and having a picnic sounds perfect to me and I have someone in my group who cannot walk very far if the trail is steep at all. Easy, short hikes are fine though.

      Grove of the Patriarchs

      by PinkFloydActuary Online Now May 29, 2007 at 7:20 PM

      Hello, all. I've been trying to get an answer from the NPS, but haven't heard back yet. I'll be travelling to Mt. Rainier this week, and one of the highlights I've read about is the Grove. However, I see that Stevens Canyon Road is currently closed. The entrance to the Grove looks to be right off 123 on this road. So my question is, can you get to the Grove when SC Road is closed, or should I not plan on heading to that side of the park?

      Thanks for any and all help!
