Featured photo of Tumtum Peak

Tumtum Peak is located in the southwest corner of Mount Rainier National Park. It's situated  immediately north of the Kautz Creek Trailhead along Paradise Road. It's also the southernmost culmination of the divide that includes Success Cleaver, Pyramid Peak, Copper Mountain, Iron Mountain, and Indian Henry's Hunting Ground. Tahoma Creek is to the west of the divide, Kautz Creek to the east, and the Nisqually River to its south. Access from the Kautz Creek trail, six miles and 2300 feet elevation gain. No view at the summit, this peak is entirely forested top to bottom.  Tumtum is Chinook jargon for "heart; or beats of the heart".
