Additional Notes/Directions:

Drive from the Nisqually entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park. (If the park isn't on your map throw it away and buy a different one.) Drive past Longmire on the way to Paradise. Don\'t arrive too early because they usually don\'t open the road past Longmire until 9:30 am or so. Stop in at Narada Falls (clearly marked and the official chain up spot if required) to check the temperature and for a good preview of what you're about to see. Parking is the hard part of the snowshoe trip. Ask the backcountry rangers at Longmire where to park.
