Sometimes, less is more. There are wonderful trails beyond the end of Windy Ridge, but the 4-mile ramble from the end of the drivable road to the end of the old ash-blasted logging road offers some of the finest views you’ll find in the entire Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument. This makes a fabulous late-afternoon hike, as you can enjoy the setting sun behind the jagged crown of the big volcano.
