The Big Outside Trip Planner: Backpacking Mount Rainier’s Northern Loop
Welcome to The Big Outside’s Trip Planner for backpacking the Northern Loop in Mount Rainier National Park.
This planner describes how to plan and execute a backpacking trip on Rainier’s 37.2-mile Northern Loop, the trip featured in my story “Completely Alone Backpacking Mount Rainier’s Northern Loop” at The Big Outside. That story includes photos from this trip.
Rainier’s Northern Loop is a scenic and much shorter alternative to the mega-popular Wonderland Trail that includes one of the best sections of the Wonderland, but is an easier backcountry permit to get than the full Wonderland.
