Did this as part of a 31 Mile day hike around the St Helens Monument. Very cool experience getting close to the mountain from this angle.

Definitely a unique perspective of Mt. Saint Helens. The trail is in good shape and the wild flowers were lovely. As it's completely out in the open, I'd highly recommend plenty of water and sunscreen.

A unique look at Mt. St. Helens, about as close to the caldera as you can get. Bring sun protection as it's all out in the open

Loved the climb, scenery. Gaiters is a good idea.... and lots of water.

The size is impressive, but the land still has not recovered and is quite barren

Great views. Can be chilly, even in summer months. Ranger guided tours help you see and notice things otherwise missed on self guided tours. Check with the visitor center and see if you can join a ranger led program.
