Mt. Rainier’s scenic roads beckon throughout the year, but perhaps there’s no more magnificent time for a driving tour of Mt. Rainier than autumn.

With two nationally designated byways around the mountain, the Chinook Scenic Byway to the north and the White Pass Scenic Byway to the south, you’re guaranteed to find numerous places to pull off to savor a picnic, snap a photo, breathe in the crisp autumn air or simply take a moment to contemplate the beauty of nature’s dazzling autumn show.
