Mt. St. Helens Day Hike #1

Date: September 28

  • Helens
    Helens

Hike along a forested ridge near this iconic volcano. We’ll explore forests untouched by the violent 1980 eruption, including a patch of old growth forest with large hemlock and fir trees draped with lichens. We’ll be in the historic blast zone and see trees that were killed by superheated gas released during the mountain’s last major awakening.
