Climb into alpine splendor on the family friendly Sourdough Ridge Trail. It’s just the trail for those looking to experience the quintessential Sunrise area hike. The trail boasts in-your-face mountain views, a trek through Sunrise’s famous alpine meadows and common sightings of Mt. Rainier’s endearing marmots. The route climbs quickly from the bustling Sunrise Visitor Center area to the top of Sourdough Ridge and continues east skirting the summit of Antler Peak.
