You'll enjoy relative silence on this hushed snowshoe along a Forest Service road near Mount Rainier. As you hike, look closely for elk signs, then look up to see gorgeous views of Sun Top and The Mountain standing in all her glory (that is, if she isn't hiding behind clouds).

A great road hike for kids, even families who are still carrying their little ones, or teaching the basics of snowshoeing.
