    The historic Mather Memorial Parkway (State Route 410) is the gateway to a recreational haven. On a clear day, enjoy spectacular views of Mt. Rainier. For more excitement, take a spin in the off-road vehicle area at Evans Creek, or zip down the slopes of Crystal Mountain Ski Area. Or if you prefer solitude, escape into the solace of the forest and leave the world behind.

    Mather Memorial Parkway Created in 1931, this paved two-lane classic Cascades drive along Highway 410 from Enumclaw to the eastern edge of Mount Rainier National Park presents majestic views of Mount Rainier and surrounding peaks. More than 200 miles of trails accommodate hikers, horses and mountain bikes. Drive, hike or ride to the Suntop Lookout Cabin at the top of Forest Road 7315. Choose a primitive campsite along forest roads east and west of the parkway. In November buy a permit at the Enumclaw office and take the family out to the woods to cut your own Christmas tree. Most forest roads are unpaved and minimally maintained. Cell phones have limited coverage in the mountains.

    Dispersed camping is the term used for camping in the National Forest OUTSIDE of a designated campground. Typically, it refers to roadside car camping, but also refers to backpacking in undeveloped sites. Dispersed camping means there are no services like trash removal, and amenities such as toilets, tables and fire pits, are not usually available.

    It is your responsibility to plan ahead and learn the extra skills necessary for dispersed camping. Camping rules and regulations apply to make your experience safe, and to keep the natural resources scenic and unspoiled for other campers.

    Dispersed camping along Forest Service roads is allowed where there is adequate space to safely park completely off the roadway and not on any vegetation. Whether car camping or backpacking, choose an existing campsite on bare or compacted soil. Unless signed as an area where a fee is required, dispersed camping is free. Dispersed camping is prohibited in developed campgrounds and areas posted closed or no camping. Some designated Wilderness areas have additional restrictions.

      The Pratt Lake Trail leads to a number of areas, offering almost unlimited possibilities for hiking, fishing and scrambling. Pass the junction with Granite Mountain Trail 1016 at milepost 0.9. At three miles a junction on the left takes you to Talapus and Olallie Lakes within Alpine Lakes Wilderness. Both lakes are very popular day-hike destinations and heavily used.

      At milepost 4.0 the trail splits and Mount Defiance Trail 1009 continues straight along the ridge above Talapus Lake, whereas the Pratt Lake trail turns to the right, dropping into the Pratt Lake basin. The Pratt Lake Trail ends here, becoming Melakwa Trail 1011 near the Pratt Lake outlet at an unmarked junction with Pratt River Trail 1035. Camp here or continue to Lower Tuscohatchie Lake on the Melakwa Lake Trail for more camp spots if Pratt Lake is crowded.

      The campground at Mowich Lake is the smallest of the four camping areas within the boundaries of Mount Rainier National Park. The road is unpaved after the first three miles and may be rough. Also, this is a walk-in campground only and fires are not allowed. With all that said, however, it just may be the most pristine and beautiful place to pitch a tent you’ll ever come across, with one of the most magnificent views of the mountain that you’ll find anywhere.

      This is a moderately-used trail connecting the Pratt Lake with Melakwa Lake within Alpine Lakes Wilderness.

      Leaving Pratt Lake, traverse through forest and open slopes with great views 10 miles down the Pratt River Valley to the Middle Fork River. (Look for the transition from second growth forest to uncut forest in the valley below. That’s as far as the North Bend Timber Company was able to drag trees down to the 1930s-era railroad line below.) Pass by the north shore of Lower Tuscohatchie Lake to the junction of the Kaleetan Lake Trail 1010 at approximately .7 miles and stay right.

      Beyond Tuscohatchie Lake, the trail continues for two miles with little elevation gain through old-growth forest with occasional views of the Pratt River valley and Kaleetan Peak. Continue for 2.3 miles, ascending gradually at first and ending in a series of switchbacks that climb to the junction with the Denny Creek Trail near Melakwa Lake. Melakwa Lake is beautiful, with clear green water and surrounding views of Bryant Peak from the east and Chair Peak from the northeast side.
