Comet Falls

Hailed as one of the most popular and dazzling hikes in the Mount Rainier National Park, Comet Falls is a natural wonder the whole family can enjoy. After only a couple of switchbacks, visitors will find scenic lookouts, flowering natural landmarks in the spring, and of course the falls, towering 320 feet and blasting a soothing mist toward its visitors on a hot day. Experienced hikers can cross-country ski during snowy months and find panoramic viewpoints off the trail. Whatever the experience level, each step is an ode to the great Northwest, and will keep visitors coming back each year with something different to do each time.
