A Clean "Front Step"

SR 706 and the towns of Elbe and Ashford are often referred to as the "Gateway to Mount Rainier." Help us keep our "front step" clean by joining a small task force of dedicated litter pickers: the Mount Rainier Volunteers' Adopt-a-Highway crew!

Per an agreement with Washington State Dept. of Transportation, our team goes out with long-armed grabbers and heavy plastic bags three times each year to patrol a two-mile section of SR 706. This stretch of road encompasses the Park's Tahoma Woods administrative facilities as well as the only good view of Mount Rainier along the highway. We want it to look nice for our visitors, so please consider joining us for our next pick-up on June 26. For more information, contact Crow at
