Backpack Mt St Helens
This still-active volcano is famous for blowing it’s top off in an 1980 eruption, resulting in a spectacular landscape to explore today. Waterfalls and bubbling springs are waiting to be discovered on this backpack trip, on trails traversing the mountain, and visiting some of the areas still recovering from the massive 1980 eruption. You’ll see alpine vistas and island or old growth forest. Each day we’ll hike through this remarkable landscape carrying everything we need on our backs, and sleep in tents at night. Read the detailed trip description to learn more (coming soon).
