panhandle_gap_coverConditions: Day hike
Gear: nothing special
Map: USGS Mt Rainier East
Area: Mt Rainier NP (White River)
Reference: 50 Hikes in Mount Raineir National Park
Stats: 11mi, 2900' gain (round trip)


Nice fall color.

I had to twist Kim's arm to do this trip so hard I nearly broke it clean through. Nice trip.

Amazing views of the mountain. I now believe this hike offers some of the best views of the mountain mainly because you get such a great view of Little Tahoma. The rounded summit of Rainier combined with the craggy pyramid of Little Tahoma is absolutely amazing.
