Market Update: Enumclaw, WA 98022

Title Insurance with First American Title

Enumclaw is a charming small community that sits on a plateau created by volcanic mud flow over 5000 years ago from Mt. Rainier. It’s far enough away on the southeastern edge of the Seattle Tacoma metro area that it hasn’t succumbed to urban sprawl. You’re about 1 ½ hours from Seattle and about 50 minutes from Tacoma. Take highway 410 east out of Enumclaw and you'll have a beautiful drive up and over the Cascades on Chinook Pass to Yakima and eastern Washington. Hang a right about 1 hour out of Enumclaw into Mt Rainier Nation Park and drive up to Sunrise. From here you can look west and north and see the Puget Sound area from Olympia, Tacoma, to Seattle. In the summer it’s truly breath taking and there are several wonderful hikes.

Do they still have that wild animal tram? I remember that it was a ways out there, but it was well worth the drive.
