The St. Helens National Volcanic Monument makes an excellent bicycling destination. It is a dramatic ride that contrasts lush evergreen forests with the stark landscape of the blast area from the eruption in 1980. This is a 'don't miss' experience for strong riders who enjoy long climbs. Try to ride off-season and early in the day before traffic and temperatures rise. Terrain: mountainous, with steady climbs and sometimes narrow, winding roads.
