Although many of the developed areas at Mount Rainier National Park predate laws requiring fully accessible facilities, we are working to ensure that all visitors can experience and enjoy the park. If you have special needs or situations not explained in the information below, call (360) 569-6575 [TDD users call (360) 569-2177], any day between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm to speak to a park ranger. If you have comments or suggestions, please email us.

The pass is valid at National Park Service sites and other areas. Learn more about the Access Pass.

A service animal is allowed on trails and in park facilities if the animal has been trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. Under the ADA, Americans with Disabilities Act, "therapy animals" providing emotional support do not qualify as service animals. Note that pets are not allowed inside buildings, on trails, or in the backcountry even when these areas are snow covered. Learn more about service animals in national parks.
