Gobsmacked! That's how most hikers feel when contemplating the Wonderland Trail. Circumnavigating iconic Mount Rainier, the Wonderland challenges hikers with more than 90 miles of spectacular scenery and an elevation gain and loss of more than 20,000 feet! It also offers stunning vistas, magnificent old growth forests, delicious berries, wildflower-filled meadows, and the opportunity to commune with marmots and mountain goats.

But before you can hit this famed trail, you have to tackle the less exhilarating challenges of wilderness permits, reservations, and itinerary planning. Where can you cache your food and fuel? How can you score that campsite under the stars? Is there a way to spare your aching knees? Fortunately, nine-time Wonderland Trail veteran Tami Asars shares her knowledge of both the trail and the park system in this beautiful new guide.

Hiking the Wonderland Trail features:

  • More than 150 full color photos, maps, and trail profiles
  • Detailed camp-to-camp route descriptions
  • Tips for planning - and getting - the itinerary you want
  • Spray Park vs. Ipsut Pass: the pros and cons of route choices
  • Clockwise and counterclockwise itineraries, ranging from 7 to 13 days
  • Leave No Trace principles and safety on the trail
  • Details on hiking the Wonderland's cousins: Northern Loop Trail and Eastside Trail
  • And much, much more!

    Whether you tackle the Wonderland in ten days or explore it in sections over time, now you can plan your own adventure with Hiking the Wonderland Trail!

    About the Author: Tami Asars is a third-generation Washingtonian and professional writer and photographer. She has led backpacking trips all over the state and teaches classes on lightweight backpacking, long-distance hiking, and the Wonderland Trail.

    Features: Paperback. 2012. 256 pp. Many color photos, appendices, and index. 6.75 x 9 x 0.75 in.
