- Tour Lewis County
Glorious Mount Rainier. Awe-inspiring Mount St. Helens. Thickly forested wilderness. Pristine streams and lush volcano valleys. Charming downtowns and abundant antique shops. Lewis County is brimming with simple pleasures, relaxing excursions and world-class outdoor adventures.
A visit to the Mt. Rainier region begins with understanding its spectacular geography.
The Northwest's #1 natural icon rises majestically, more than a mile and a half above
the surrounding mountains. It can be approached through four distinct corridors: the
NW Carbon River Area, the NE Sunrise Area, the SW Paradise Area, and the SE White Pass Area.
The heart of Volcano Country, located centrally between Mt. Rainier, Mt. St. Helens, and
Mt. Adams. Packwood's remote locations and small town charm appeal to the visitor who's
looking for a wonderful place to relax and refresh. Scenic beauty and recreational
opportunities attract visitors from all over the world who come for the hiking, hunting,
fishing, bird and wildlife watching, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling and camping.

For many visitors, from within the region or around the world, the byway is a route for
exploring Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helens and Mt Adams. For those in the know - either
canny locals or niche recreationists from around the country - there are amazing recreational
opportunities all along the byway, in every season.
