Visit Mount Rainer

Auburn is very close to Mount Rainier National Park, with Mount Ranier being one of the most famous mountains in Washington.

Mount Rainier itself is comprised of an active volcano and guided tours are available for those who want to climb the mountain. For a more subdued approach, cabins can be rented in the area surrounding the base. Mount Rainier ascends nearly 14,410 feet into the air at its highest point for absolutely breathtaking views.
