Timed-entry reservations begin at Mount National Park’s Paradise Corridor


Mount Rainier National Park timed-entry reservations for visits to the popular Paradise Corridor began Friday, May 24, and will run through Monday, Sept. 2. Many weekend and weekday advance-timed entry reservations for the Paradise Corridor remain available. The Sunrise Corridor is projected to fully open by Thursday, July 4. Weekday reservations for the Sunrise Corridor in July are still available, and both weekday and weekend timed-entry reservations for Sunrise in August are also available. Visitors who prefer a more spontaneous visit can enter the park without a timed-entry reservation before 7 a.m. or after 3 p.m., or they may choose to wait for a second block of timed entry reservations to be released at 7 p.m. daily for visits on the following day.

In addition, Stevens Canyon Road has reopened after a two-year rehabilitation project, and the portions of state Routes 123 and 410 that travel through the park’s eastern boundary have also reopened. The portion of SR 410 from the intersection of SR 123 past Tipsoo Lake remains closed, pending washout repairs. Vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists are prohibited in the closed area, and no parking is allowed at the intersection of SR 410/SR 123 near Cayuse Pass. There is no access to Tipsoo Lake until final road repairs are completed. Information on road status of all locations in the park is updated on the road status site at https://www.nps.gov/mora/planyourvisit/road-status.htm.
