In the winter this pathway is a popular snowshoe trek. For another nice afternoon stroll, walk through the operations and residential area and cross the wooden suspension bridge over the Nisqually River to a magnificent view of the mountain. It is also a starting point for hikers of the Wonderland Trail.
Just up ahead, the road passes very pretty Christine Falls. Stop at the turnout on the right and have a better look. This waterfall can be viewed without having to lace up your hiking boots. Notice the stone masonry highway bridge forming a picturesque frame over the lovely 40 foot falls as it splashes down the lower reaches of Van Trump Creek.
A small flight of stairs leads to another beautiful lookout of the falls. You can also see Point Success — the false summit of Mt. Rainier, Gibraltar Rock and Cowlitz Cleaver. The cone-shaped peak down the valley is Tumtum Peak. The Ricksecker Point Road is open in the summer months only. Walk the short trail to a view of the falls at 0.

Its picture-perfect beauty makes it one of the most photographed areas of the park — and you can get there by car. On a peaceful day, the reflection is almost too grand!

Rainier National Park is intriguing Box Canyon.
The Muddy Fork of the Cowlitz River at only a few feet wide has, over time, cut a channel into the mossy rock and created a canyon feet deep but only 15 to 30 feet across.
