WELCOME to Sunrise!

At an elevation of 6,400 feet, Sunrise is the highest point that can be reached by vehicle at Mount Rainier National Park. In summer, mountain meadows abound with wildflowers. 

On clear days, Sunrise provides breathtaking views of Mount Rainier, Emmons glacier, and many other volcanoes in the Cascade Range. These views and an excellent trail system make Sunrise the second most visited location in the park.

Sunrise is located 60 miles northeast of the Nisqually Entrance and 14 miles northwest of the Sunrise/White River turnoff on Highway 410.

Services at Sunrise include:

  • The Sunrise Visitor Center is open daily from early July to early October and closed in winter. Here visitors will find exhibits, guided interpretive programs, book sales, and a picnic area.
  • The Sunrise Day Lodge, open only from early July to late September, offers food service, and a gift shop. There is no overnight lodging at the Sunrise Day Lodge.
  • The White River Campground and picnic area is located 12 miles from Sunrise Visitor Center.

The Sunrise Road usually opens in late June or early July and closes in late September to early October. Check the road status before setting out.

Enjoy these day hikes in the Sunrise area.
