We took a tour from Seattle with Customised Tours. After entering the park we visited Longmire before the drive up to Paradise. The views were stunning and the Paradise visitor centre is well worth going to. It does get very busy in the summe4 months.

Very nice drive. You should come here in the morning so you can find parking on the top at Paradise. Stop by Longmire because gift shop here is great and not crowded and stop for a short visit in the museum (free of charge).

A drive from Longmire to Skyline is a pleasure in itself, but getting out and hiking the short 1/2 mile trail from Paradise to Myrtle Falls is exquisite. The trails are clear at that low level, although there are patches of snow farther up on...More
