Situated within the Mountain Rainier National Park, Washington, the Golden Gate Loop Trail is a 4-mile loop trail with breathtaking and panoramic views of Mount Rainier and its green and lush terrain. Being a seasonal trail, it is best used from July to September and is primarily used for a variety of activities such as hiking, walking, running and nature trips. The Golden Gate Loop Trail is home to a variety of indigenous plants such as conifer trees and lupines. In addition to offering hikers breathtaking views of the glaciated Mount Rainier, the Golden Gate Loop Trail also offers excellent vistas of a waterfall and snowmelt streams. It is important for hikers to remember two things; dogs are not allowed on the trail and a National Park Fee is required to gain access to the trail. Hikers may obtain water from nearby streams; however, they should remember to treat the water first before drinking.
