Though a 5 mile route, the view of Mount Saint Helens is at about the 2 mile point. The top of Larch Mountain is covered in service towers. You can continue from there and do the entire Tarbell Trail. You can also go to Hidden Falls. Hidden Falls is currently closed according to signs at the trailhead. Please check with park before leaving. Please note that a bridge has been reported out at 1.5 miles in.

Yes a bridge is out, currently the stream is a trickle and can be crossed super easy. I ran this and liked the view of St. Helens around 2miles in, you can also see Mt Hood on the trail up.

There is a bridge out about 1.5 miles in and you're probably not supposed to cross, but I was able to easily. The view of St. Helens is a little under 2 miles in. It isn't really worth going past that unless you plan to do the whole Tarbell Trail and possibly go to Hidden Falls. The top of Larch Mtn is just some service towers. The section to Hidden Falls is closed right now according to signs at the trailhead.
