The Stomach-Dropping Suspended Bridge Walk You Can Only Find In Washington

For the most part, the Grove of the Patriarchs Nature Trail is the easiest hike in Mount Rainier National Park. It’s a mere 1.2 miles in length, it’s easily accessible, and most of the trail is covered in boardwalks for easy strolling. But the trek also includes a short suspended bridge walk right over a river, which might make some hikers a little uneasy.

The Grove of the Patriarchs Nature Trail features one of the more mellow suspension bridges in the park. If you’re feeling a bit more daring, try the Tahoma Creek Suspension Bridge.
