The stunning view of four volcanoes—Adams, St. Helens, Rainier, and Hood—makes clear why this was a lookout site from 1927 to 1971. Today, it is part of a Research Natural Area set aside for scientific studies by forest ecologists. Children can enjoy the spooky character of the old subalpine trees as the trail winds up to a summit cliff; once there, they can imagine being on the prow of a ship. Hang onto hands as you gaze down at three lakes and miles of forest and out to four massive ice mountains.
