    Hiking Trail
    Open Details
    The Nisqually Vista Trail is so named because it gives you some dynamite views of the Nisqually Glacier. It is only 1.2 miles round-trip, so it should be a nice complement hike to the Myrtle Falls stroll you took before this. That way, you can see more of the park during your day here. One great advantage of this trail is that it is one of the only ones in the park that is paved.
