Unlike Sourdough Ridge at Sunrise you might have Crystal Mountain to yourself, especially during the summer.
In winter you’ll share the popular Mount Rainier Gondola at the Crystal Mountain Resort with skiers so get an early start.
In summer you can hike the trail to Crystal Mountain and ride the Gondola back down to the Crystal Mountain Resort.
In addition to views that compel writers to resort to clichés; there’s also a gift-shop and the Summit House Restaurant. Views are available year-round.
