Morton

Nestled in a valley between Mt. Rainier National Park & Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monument

Take in a concert, class or theater performance. Browse in the art gallery and see the area history on display at the Historic Morton Train Depot.  Morton’s commitment to the arts is evidenced by the opportunities available for residents, visitors and the artists themselves. 

Not every community can boast towering mountain foothills, scenic and remote rivers, and several nearby lakes – not to mention a national park, national monument and a ski area all within an hour’s drive.  In the spring and summer, hiking, wildlife watching and sightseeing are popular, giving way to fishing and then skiing, snowmobiling and snowplay opportunities all nearby during the fall and winter. 

Time to escape the busy routines and enjoy a sense of clarity and calm while experiencing arts and culture in the mountains.  

Morton is the crossroads of adventure. US Hwy 12 intersects with Hwy 7 north to Elbe and Ashford where the road leads into the year round entrance of Mt. Rainier Natonal Park. The Mt Rainier Railroad and museum is located in Elbe, and further west,  you will find a small community of Eatonville and then onto the urban center of Tacoma and Seattle.
