Narada Falls

This magical waterfall – and popular Mt. Rainier tourist attraction – is located on the road from Longmire to Paradise, just one mile west of the entrance to the Paradise area. At 176 feet high, the falls has two distinct features: the top tier, and tallest at 159 feet is a horsetail fall, so described because it has multiple channels down the rock face.

The lower tier is a 17-foot plunge to a pool. Reached by a short, but often wet and slippery path, the best viewing is from below the road. Parking is convenient and for any visitor, especially waterfalls devotees, this stop is a must-see. There is a trail available to hike down below the falls however it is often wet and slippery, and not typically snow-free until late May. For lodging in Mt.
