We'll journey from downtown Seattle to Sunrise Visitor's Center on the North side of Mount Rainier. From there we'll put on our hiking shoes and tackle the Three Burroughs Trail - the prettiest trail on Mount Rainier with the best views of the mountain. Burroughs Mountain has been described as a mountain against a mountain. At over 7800 feet, Burroughs Mountain sets right up against the northeastern face of Mount Rainier, hugging the Winthrop Glacier. It offers one of the most dramatic views of Washington's largest volcano. The hike is moderate to challenging with options to turn around at 4, 6 and 9 miles making this the perfect option for those that want to push beyond the crowds but question their own limitations and abilities. This is YOUR hike, and we'll push as far as you are comfortable. But trust me, the views are worth it. There is no technical climbing and those in moderate to fit condition will find this hike to be both challenging and rewarding. You don't need special gear or prior experience - just an adventuresome spirit! Please note that our season on Mount Rainier ends September 30 and will resume July 2020.

I started my own adventure company Adventures In Seattle and we focus on small private and semi-private hikes for adventuring souls. We focus on hikes off the beaten path and away from the crowds. Either myself or Kevin lead each hike. We are both experienced, professional outdoor guides with Wilderness First Responder certifications. We love to share our wonderful world with other adventure seeking individuals who feel the wanderlust and the tug of the mountains. Because the mountains are calling, and we must go... My annual quest for adventure has taken me on the Longest Horse Race in Mongolia, on a rescue mission on horseback to Lesotho, to the ends of the earth in Patagonia and to a remote reindeer tribe in Mongolia. But the truth is - I can find adventure right here in my backyard and on the flanks of beautiful Mount Rainier.
