“Pleasant, easy hike”
Scenic 1.5-mi. roundtrip loop through some of the biggest, oldest trees in the Washington Cascades stand tall in the Grove of the Patriarchs. These silent old men of moss tower overhead, with a few lying down to show us just how massive the trunks really are. The Grove resides in a low, boggy area across the Ohanapecosh River, so you'll need to cross a sweet little suspension bridge to get there, offering you a chance to enjoy a bit of adventure on this simple little trail.
This was a great stop during our stay in Mount Rainier. The trail is very easy for all ages. It's a quick loop with lots of beautiful large trees. When you get to the loop the Grove of the Patriarchs are gigantic! This stop is very popular and we did have to wait for a parking spot, however on the trail it was spread out enough to not feel like there was a lot of people there.
