great trail to start with, easy access and clearly marked. In the Mt. St. Helens new growth area. A lot of ponds and new vegetation growth to see since the mountain destruction. Chipmunks and birds to capture. Even saw a grouse with a chick. Single lane trail, no bikes, lots to see.

I would not recommend this trail for anyone, including kids. Though there is not too much elevation gain which would make this easier for children, the weeds are way overgrown and it feels like the entirety of the trip you are walking through brush. The trail is not maintained and I couldn’t wait for the trail to be over. Though there are a couple beautiful views of Mt St Helens, there are many other opportunities and trails to get a similar view!

Two awesome views of St. Helens and then an hour of overgrown 3-5 ft weeds grass and brush. Saw two garter snakes Can’t say this was an enjoyable hike. Highly recommend going the for the first 20 min, get the view and turn around and save an hour of your life wading through brush trying not to step on snakes =) Better yet, just keep going to the observatory at the end of the highway, there is a better trail along the ridge with epic views of St Helens

A fun, easy hike with lots of wildflowers and shade. We continued past the loop down the Boundary Trail a bit and reached some good views of hummocks and Mt. St. Helens.

A couple tricky spots with loose rock and narrow trail with drop off, not best place for someone with a height problem. Mountain gave us a brief show of her beauty!

Trailhead not clearly marked at all and the directions take you down a poorly maintenanced road with a “closed” sign on it. Looked like a good hike but we wound up spending the day at coldwater lake instead!

Great trail for kids that are used to hiking. Tons of shady spots throughout to take breaks out of the sun. Can be steep hills in spots with slippery footing but a great trail otherwise.

This is a great trail with great views of Mount St. Helen. The trail is very narrow with mud in a lot of places. It wasn’t too busy. Overall it was a good trail.

Unfortunately, I missed where it said no dogs so our little one had to stay in the truck for a few hours. Minus the very end with how steep the incline was, we loved this trail. The end was only difficult due to our 2.5 year old being completely exhausted and needing to be carried (he’s 53 lbs and tall for his age). Views are fantastic. Great day trip (we’re from Vancouver) and we had a great day. Stopped to eat our lunch along the way.

Nice and short little stroll but I wouldn’t go out of my way to get to this trail. I started counter-clockwise from the lot. If you want to get to the view, go clockwise. There’s nothing too special that you’d be missing out on.

Such a beautiful trail and a beautiful view of Mt. St. Helens. A little muddy in spots and a few little snakes by the water.

A beautiful trail. Took my 3 year old and had a great time. We got caught in the rain but it didn’t spoil the fun. The mountain was beautiful even partially covered in clouds. Will go back again on a clear day.

6/3 gorgeous views!!! Took 3, 5 and 10 year old kids and it was perfect. Mainly in the sun so I can see this trail getting really hot and dusty in the summer. Will go back again

Nice quick hike with some pretty views. Rocky in some places so pay attention to your footing. This trail is a good option for kiddos -- you may want to hike counterclockwise to avoid the decent incline.

Great quick hike of 2.4 miles. GPS lead me to Coldwater lake first but easily found the trailhead parking lot across the street as I anticipated.

Ends of trail are moderate in the sense that they are steepish, the middle of the hike is very much easy and flat. I would recommend starting counterclockwise if you want to avoid a steep incline. I went clockwise and the beginning was a gradual decline with a sharp incline at the end. I would have gone the opposite way had I known.

Nice trail for a Saturday family hike. It was raining the entire time, but it wasn’t miserable. Lots of muddy spots, puddles to hop over. We heard some birds, no other wildlife. There was a split after the connection with the Boundary Trail that was unmarked; we went straight, instead of towards the river, which ended up being the correct choice to make the loop back to the lot. It was really clouded over, so no view of MSH. Pretty abandoned when we were there. (We has our 11, 8, and 4yo kids with us, they all did fine!)

Originally heading to Johnson Ridge but the road to the observatory was closed so we took this one instead. It was beautiful! Amazing views of St Helens Very hot and little cover so bring a hat and tons of sunscreen. This hike will still take you to Johnson Ridge.

Beautiful view of the mountain. A great mix of sunny open trail and shaded winding forest. The trail was rocky in places and we all lost our footing at one point or another. A great trail for kids, my 10, 8 and 4 year old walked the whole loop hardly complaining.
