Hit the trails this summer with a Crystal Mountain Guide and wind your way through lush pine forests, past quiet streams and lakes, through wide-open meadows of wildflowers. The day will begin by taking the Mt. Rainier Gondola up to the Summit House Restaurant for a group lunch. Then you’ll hike down the Crystal Mountain Trail with your Crystal Mountain guide. The Crystal Mountain Trail is 6 miles downhill, loosing about 3,000 vertical feet of elevation. This is recommended for intermediate to advanced hikers.
