Mount Rainier’s Longmire-Paradise gate to stay open at night

The gate between Longmire and Paradise at Mount Rainier National Park will remain open overnight starting Thursday, though overnight closures may still occur during inclement weather, the park said Tuesday.

During winter, the road from Longmire to Paradise typically closes in the late afternoon and reopens the next morning.

All vehicles entering the park are required to carry tire chains in vehicles through May 1 because road and weather conditions can deteriorate quickly. Drivers should obey the posted traction requirements to avoid accidents, the park said.

More information about the park, including road updates, is available online.
