Washington State's famed Wonderland Trail is a spectacular 93-mile route that circumnavigates Mount Rainier, challenging hikers with its strenuous 22,000 feet of cumulative elevation gain and loss. Hiking the Wonderland Trail: The Complete Guide to Mount Rainier's Premier Trail is an authoritative guidebook penned by Washington native Tami Asars (me!), a professional instructor on hiking the trail, a third-generation hiker of the Cascade mountains, and seven-time hiker of the entire Wonderland Trail. In this guide I draw on my experience, covering these essentials:
  • How to work with the Wonderland Trail permit reservation system, and when to apply
  • Recommended gear--with a checklist--and ways to reduce pack weight, prevent blisters, and stay warm and dry
  • How to pack the perfect backpack
  • Food and fuel caching on the Wonderland, tips and instruction
  • Detailed camp-to-camp route descriptions and suggested itineraries
  • How to extend your adventures with the Northern Loop Trail and the Eastside Trail

Over the years, I have taken extensive notes that I share at workshops and in the field. Hiking the Wonderland Trail distills my boot-tested knowledge so that everyone can enjoy the magic of Mount Rainier's premier trail.
