Explore Ashford!

Just six miles outside the Nisqually Entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park sits the mountain community of Ashford. Tucked away in the forested foothills discover lodging establishments from cozy cabins to friendly motels, all serving as basecamp for Mt. Rainier adventures.

Area restaurants include family friendly grills, convenient cafes and historic inns. Of course recreation abounds with summertime hiking trails and winter snowshoe routes all in close proximity.  Mt. Tahoma Trail System is accessed just a few miles east of Ashford. Several shops and galleries in town offer exquisite, original artworks and outdoor shops provide gear for year-round adventure. The 80 acre Ashford County Park, located on Highway 706, offers a children’s play area, accessible trails, and a restroom facility.  Recent additions to the park include an amphitheater, great lawn, additional trails, additional parking, utility infrastructure, and a set of new restrooms. This is a great venue for large groups or family gatherings.
