Mount Rainier

Rampart Ridge Trail is a moderate hike in Mount Rainier National Park that leads hikers through thick lush forest and offers amazing scenery. The park says "this steep loop trail passes through forests and offers ridge top vistas. Follow the Trail of the Shadows, located across the road from the National Park Inn at Longmire, to the trail junction." Mount Rainier has plenty of camping available. Cougar Rock Campground is located in the southwest section of the park, Ohanapecosh Campground is in the southeast, White River is in the northeast section and Mowich Lake is a small tent only campground in the northwest section of Mount Rainier.
