Road to Paradise open at Mount Rainier National Park

First time since Valentine's Day

Tacoma News TribuneFebruary 22, 2014 

Despite heavy snows, road crews at Mount Rainier National Park managed today to open the 12-mile road from Longmire to Paradise.

The road to the popular winter playground has been closed to the public since Valentine's Day and park crews have been working long hours to clear it.

All vehicles must carry tire chains.

Drivers of two-wheel-drive vehicles are being required to chain up at Longmire before they head up.
