Mt. Rainier Wildflowers 7/13/2018

Mt. Rainier National Park reports

Currently Blooming

What’s your favorite: glacier lily or avalanche lily? (Or both!) Currently, white avalanche lilies are blooming on the slopes above the Paradise Valley Road, while yellow glacier lilies are carpeting the valley floor.

Please Note: As snow melts away, it may be tempting to skirt remaining patches of snow that are covering trails. However, by going off trail you are walking on and damaging the wildflowers that you may be coming to see! It is better to stay on trail even if that means crossing snow, particularly in the high-visitation meadows around Paradise and Sunrise.
