Mount Rainier behind Seattle

Mount Rainier National Park

Mount Rainier National Park is located southeast of Seattle. Mount Rainier can be seen on a clear day from the Seattle metropolitan area.

Of all the mountains that surround Seattle, Mount Rainier stands boldest. On clear days, you can see the mountain from downtown, but to grasp its full beauty, you must see it up close.

Breathtaking vistas await on this rocky peak more than 14,000 feet tall. Even when clouds in Seattle obscure the view from the city center, once you climb in altitude, Mount Rainier's scenery is awe-inspiring.
