Bench and Snow Lake Trail in Mt Rainier National Park

Bench and Snow Lake Trail in Mt Rainier National Park is a pleasant and easy 2.5 miles roundtrip to pretty lakes surrounded by steep walled cirque valley mountains. Along the way are closeup views of trees and flowers, while Mt Rainer looms large in the background. It’s a great strolling hike and family friendly. And when the summer crowds are out of control at Paradise, this can be a nice offshoot to explore with a lot fewer people around.
