Harmony Trail is a 2.1 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Stevenson, WA that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from June until September.
From Randle, drive south 1 mile on Highway 131 to Forest Service Road 25. Stay to the right and drive 19 miles to Forest Service Road 99. Turn right and drive 16 miles to the signed trailhead on the right.
Really great views ends up at the north end of the lake, pretty waterfall and not many people. Worth the drive!
Great little trail. Short. A bit steep at the beginning but flatters out the closer to the lake you get. It's the only place you can legally get down to the water. Overall highly recommend.
33 years after the eruption, logs are still afloat in Spirit Lake, and the trees are still laying flat from the blast. Now Mt. St. Helens is coming back to life. There are newly seeded trees starting to cover the ground, beautiful wildflowers, Huckleberries, Service Berries, and Salmonberries along the trail. This is a great hike. It should be listed as Moderate because the hike back out is 600' change in elevation over .8 miles. This is one hike you should complete.
