The Wonderland Trail routes around the famous Mount Rainier in the state of Washington. The trail lies entirely within the Mount Rainier National Park, which is a popular local attraction. The hiking season is quite narrow due to lingering snow, and reservations are required for both developed campsites and obtaining a wilderness backcountry permit. The overall difficulty of the trail is strenuous. The trail sees significant elevation changes as it winds up and down the mountains surrounding Mount Rainier. However, it is also relatively short compared with many other long distance hiking trails, so logistics like water and resupply are much simpler.
