Route description: starts from Narada Falls in Mt Rainier National Park and ascends a forest trail with a few rolling sections before reaching Stevens Canyon road. Route ends at Louise Lake a half mile or so east of Reflection Lakes. None of the route is groomed for Nordic (track) skiing.
XC Skiers note: the forest trail between Narada Falls and Stevens Canyon road can be challenging on narrow cross country skis. For that reason, like me, you may want to bring snowshoes for this section of the route.

Elevation gain: 600 feet.
Duration: ~3 hours.
Permit: Mt Rainier National Park.
Drive duration from park-n-ride to trailhead: 2 hours.
