The waterfalls of Mt. Rainier are nothing short of spectacular and the snowmelt during spring offers the best opportunity to view the falls at their peak. Driving to Paradise and just a short walk from their respective parking areas will afford views of pretty Christine Falls and thundering Narada Falls. Near Paradise, take a day hike to Comet Falls or trek along the Paradise River Trail affording views of both Carter and Madcap Falls. Once at Paradise, a family-friendly walk from Paradise on the Edith Creek Trail will take you to Myrtle Falls and one of the most photographed vistas in the park.
