Just the facts: Mount Rainier National Park When was the park established?

Congress established Mount Rainier National Park on March 2, 1899, reaffirming the nation’s intent to set aside certain areas of outstanding scenic and scientific value for the enjoyment of present and future generations. It is America’s fifth-oldest national park, after Yellowstone (established in 1872), and Yosemite, General Grant (now part of Kings Canyon), and Sequoia (all in 1890).

How big is the park?

Mount Rainier National Park encompasses 235,625 acres or 368 square miles. Of that amount, 228,480 acres (97 percent) has been designated by Congress as wilderness. The park’s National Historic Landmark District includes 2.7 percent of the park. The park has over 260 miles of maintained trails and 147 miles of roads.

How many people visit Mount Rainier?

Generally, 1.5 to 2 million people visit Mount Rainier each year. In 2010, the park had 1,731,913 visitors.

Is the park open all year?

Yes, but some areas, including Sunrise, White River, Ohanapecosh, state routes 410 and 123, and the Stevens Canyon Road close for the season in mid-October or earlyNovember and do not reopen until summer. Call 360-5692211 for a recorded message on road conditions.

How tall is Mount Rainier?

The official measurement is 14,410 feet above sea level.

How old is Mount Rainier?

The volcano was built up above the surrounding country by repeated eruptions and successive flows of lava. It is a relatively young volcano, only about 500,000 years old. By contrast the mountains of the Cascade Range that Mount Rainier looks down upon are at least 12 million years old!

How many climb Rainier each year?

In 2010, 10,643 people attempted to climb Mount Rainier; 4,920 of them actually reached the summit.

Is Mount Rainier an active volcano?

Geologists consider this mountain to be an ‘episodically active’ volcano, meaning one that will erupt again some time in the future even though it may be quiet now. Mount Rainier is the tallest volcano and fifth highest peak in the contiguous United States.

Is it safe to visit Mount Rainier?

New research indicates Mount Rainier is far more active than previously believed. We now understand there are risks associated with the volcano and its glaciers that require visitors and staff to be aware and prepared. Mud flows (also known as lahars) and glacial outburst floods can occur without warning, and could damage roads, invade campgrounds, and cause enormous injury to park visitors and staff. The Longmire Historic District, Cougar Rock, Ohanapecosh, Sunshine Point, Ipsut Creek and White River campgrounds are all vulnerable to geologic hazards. While many people believe the danger to be mini-

Love

mal, only you can decide if you want to spend time in this unpredictable and changing landscape. If you choose to visit, be sure to review information posted at park campgrounds and inns.

When did the volcano last erupt?

The last estimated eruption was between 1820 and 1894. Observers reported at least 14 eruptions. Some of these may have been just large dust clouds caused by rockfall which were mistakenly called eruptions.

How much snow and ice is on Rainier?

Over 35 square miles of permanent ice and snow cover Mount Rainier. Of all the glaciers in the contiguous U.S., Mount Rainier’s Emmons Glacier has the largest surface area (4.3 square miles). Carbon Glacier is the longest (5.7 miles), thickest (700 feet), and has the lowest terminus elevation (3,500 feet) in the contiguous U.S.

How is the weather at Mount Rainier?

Weather patterns at Mount Rainier are strongly influenced by the Pacific Ocean, elevation, and latitude. The climate is generally cool and rainy, with summer highs in the 60s and 70s. While July and August are the sunniest months of the year, rain is possible any day, and very likely in spring, fall, and winter.

How much rain falls at Mount Rainier?

The east side of the mountain is much drier than the western, rainy side. Weather stations are maintained at three locations within the national park: At Paradise (elevation 5400 feet) an average of 126 inches of rain falls annually. At Longmire (elevation 2761 feet) an average of 87 inches of rain falls annually. At Ohanapecosh (elevation 1900 feet) an average of 75 inches of rain falls annually.

Where can I camp?

Three campgrounds are available for car camping. These campgrounds offer 480 campsites during the summer. No RV hookups or showers are available. Campgrounds may fill on summer weekends and holidays. While there are limited first-come, first-serve camp sites during summer months available at Cougar Rock and Ohanapecosh campgrounds, most camp sites require reservations. To make reservations call (877) 444-6777; international (518) 885-3639; TDD (877) 833-6777; or visit the Recreation.gov website. Bring your own water and firewood. Firewood is also available at the campgrounds through a vendor for the summer months. Gathering firewood anywhere in the park is prohibited.

Where can I walk my dog?

Basically, your pet can only go where your car can go: on roads, in parking lots and campgrounds. Your pet must be on a leash (not more than 6 feet long) and under your control at all times and may not be staked. Pets are not allowed on trails, snow, in any buildings or amphitheaters, or in the Wilderness. The only exceptions are service animals such

? Then you’ll love

as seeing-eye and hearing-ear dogs. However, dogs on a leash (not more than 6 feet) are allowed on a small portion of the Pacific Crest Trail near the park’s eastern boundary.

Can I fish in the park?

Many of the rivers flowing off Mount Rainier contain glacial silt; fish are not abundant in park waters. Fishing with a line and hook is permitted in most lakes and rivers. No license is required. The use of live bait is prohibited; you must use artificial flies, lures, or preserved salmon eggs.

Where can I ride my bicycle?

Park roads are narrow with heavy summer traffic. Helmets are required. The Westside Road and the Carbon River Road, provide good bicycling opportunities. However, the Carbon River Road is very rough and caution is advised. Bicycles are not permitted on any park trails.

Is gas available in the park?

Gas is NOT available in the park, but there are gas stations in nearby communities. Make sure you have plenty of gas before you begin your exploration of the park!

What is the admission fee?

For private, non-commercial vehicles the fee is $15 for an entrance pass that is good for up to seven calendar days. Pedestrians, single motorcyclists, bicyclists, and passengers in non-privately owned vehicles pay $5 per person. Visitors under 16 years of age are free. Special passes are available for disabled visitors and U.S. residents aged 62 and over. For information on annual passes and commercial tour bus fees call (360)569-6621. Camping fees are not included in the entrance fee.

How many species of plants?

There are approximately 900 plant species in the park, including over 100 exotic species.

When will the wildflowers peak?

The “peak” bloom for wildflowers is heavily dependent on weather and precipitation patterns, so accurate predictions are difficult. However, by mid-July, many flowers will be blooming in most years, and by the first of August the meadows should be very impressive. Frost can occur by late August, but even after light frosts the meadows continue to be very beautiful, thanks to changing leaf colors and seed pod development that take the place of colorful blossoms.

How many species live in the park?

Mount Rainier National Park is home to approximately 54 species of mammals, 126 species of birds, and 17 species of amphibians and reptiles.

What is the chunky animal we see?

That’s a hoary marmot, one of the meadow residents that’s easy to see during the summer months. Marmots generally like to stay in the subalpine meadows rather than the lower forests, and they hibernate in the winter.
