The park’s permitting process has changed for the 2020 season in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, we anticipate continued access to the Mount Rainier Wilderness during the summer season. Use limits, access, and procedures could change in response to local and national guidance. If your trip is affected by these changes, you will be contacted by Mount Rainier staff.
Mount Rainier National Park will be implementing a phased plan to provide increased access to the park. The health and safety of employees, visitors and partners remains Mount Rainier National Park's highest priority. As access to the park increases, Mount Rainier will continue to minimize the risk to the visitor and protect our employees from possible transmission of COVID-19, as well as prepare for emergency medical and search-and-rescue services. Information on increased access to Mount Rainier National Park will be posted to the park's website, Facebook, and Twitter.
