From Day Hiking Mount Rainier by Dan Nelson Driving Directions: From Tacoma, drive east on State Route 7 to Elbe, then veer left onto SR 706 to enter the park at the Nisqually Entrance near Ashford. Continue east to Longmire and pull into the parking area. Drive past the ranger station to the bridge over the Nisqually River, found behind the staff housing. Check with the ranger to make sure this bridge is passable. If the road to the bridge is closed, park in the lot behind the Longmire hotel and walk to the bridge to find the trail on the far side.
