About: Tolmie Peak is a 5940 feet peak in the Mount Rainier area of the Cascade Range, in the U.S. state of Washington. It is located in the northwest part of Mount Rainier National Park. Its elevation is given by Peakbagger.com as "between 5920 and 5960 feet (40-foot closed contour)". Streams that drain the slopes of Tolmie Peak, including Tolmie Creek and Ranger Creek, join the Carbon River, which flows into the Puyallup River and Puget Sound. Just south of Tolmie Peak is Eunice Lake. To the northwest is Howard Peak. Mowich Lake is a few miles south of Tolmie Peak. Tolmie Peak is named for William Fraser Tolmie. In August 1833, employed by Hudson's Bay Company and stationed at the newly built Fort Nisqually, Tolmie made the first recorded exploration of the Mount Rainier area. Unable to summit Rainier itself, Tolmie and two Indian guides, Lachalet and Nuckalkat, summited one of the snowy peaks near the Mowich River headwaters. Although Tolmie Peak is named for this event, it is not known exactly which peak was climbed.
