Berkeley Park is a wonderful place for peaceful rest and precious quietness. This place is considered to be one of the best displays of wildflower. July is the best time for enjoying colorful flowers that make a perfect background for Mount Rainier. We hiked here at the end of August, and we can say satisfaction guaranteed. Slopes of the mountains are covered with green and the peaks are covered with snow... what a perfect combination!

Berkeley Park Trail is a moderate, family-friendly day hike that brings you in the heart of beautiful nature.

The trail to Berkeley Park starts at the Sunrise Visitor Center. The path runs towards Sourdough Mountains. After 0.2 mile the trail splits, take the path that runs west and runs to Berkeley Park. The path that goes from the junction is well-maintained and your next 20-minute hike will be pleasant and full of views.

This beautiful path takes you to Frozen Lake and from here there are several options for your hike continuation: the path that goes to the south will take you to Burroughs Mountains, if you go to the North, you’ll enjoy wonderful views from Freemont Fire Lookout, and the path that runs west brings hikers to Berkeley Park.

Follow the signs to the Wonderland Trail. The path from Frozen Lake gradually descends to Berkeley Park. If you choose to hike in summer, enjoy the multicolored carpet under your feet as you descend. Berkeley Meadows are the most beautiful and particolored meadows in the Sunrise Area. We enjoyed greenery and breathtaking views of the mountains and the sky. This world is perfectly created, let's enjoy it to the full!


From Enumclaw

Drive east 43 miles on State Route 410 to the Mount Rainier National Park White River Entrance. Turn right onto the Sunrise Road and drive for 17 miles west to the large parking lot and visitor center at the end of the road. Sunrise Road usually doesn't open until early July.
