Hike of the week: Cougar Rock Campground

Hike description: This short section of the Wonderland Trail, the 93-mile trail that circumnavigates Mount Rainier, offers both a great hike and a great snowshoe, depending on conditions. It is a good alternative when the road to Paradise opens late because of snow removal, or not at all because of avalanche concerns. Better to be on the trail than moping around Longmire.
