A beautiful hike showing many faces of St. Helens. The turn-around point has good views of Spirit Lake and the crater on Helens. There are a few difficult gorge crossings on the way to Ape Canyon at the beginning where the trail is not in the best shape. Often June Lake will be in the clouds but you will emerge in to the sun on the higher and drier east side of the mountain.
