This is one of the most common questions we’ve received and we’re so thrilled to introduce you to Wilkeson, a little town of roughly 450 people. Located at the base of Mount Rainier National Park's Carbon River entrance, you can access scenic parks, hiking, the ghost towns of nearby Fairfax and Melmont, off-roading at Evans Creek, Alpine lakes, and of course, delicious little places to eat. Check out our blogs below, as well as this article from Travel Tacoma, or the Historic Wilkeson Waking Tour & Vicinity Map for specific ideas.
