Description: Hike through the forests of Eleanor Creek Basin, past Eleanor Lake, to a mile-long meadow full of wildflowers with Mt. Rainier looming above it . . . and now you know why it’s called the Grand Park!https://www.wta.org/site_images/trip-reports/2017/tripreport.image.2017-07-26.3680057350/@@images/f9b24dcd-eb31-4c32-ad7c-038e12e6a69d.jpeg

The hike begins from a trailhead located on Forest Service Road 7360.

Bring your camera for this hike. Besides the meadows, the mountain, and the varied flora, deer and elk frequent this area.

Bring a lunch, good hiking boots and, at this time of year, it’s always a good idea to bring some bug spray.

We are open to suggestions for a dinner stop after the hike if the group so desires. Heavy rain cancels.
