Burroughs Mountain Loop weekend day hike on Mt. Rainier

This ten mile alpine route offers more than just wonderful wildlife viewing. The trail atop Burroughs Mountain provides hikers outstanding views of the northeast face of Mount Rainier. Little Tahoma can be seen flanking Rainier, and the tower-topped peak of Mount Fremont stands to the north. Closer at hand, marmots and pikas dash between the rocks along the trail. Mountain goats can be found showing off their agility on the sides of the local peaks. And raptors--from lightning-fast peregrines to massive golden eagles--soar overhead. This is a great day hike for people looking for a challenge and some of the best experiences Mt. Rainier National Park has to offer.
