Birth of a Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Follow a delightful nature trail along Coldwater Lake’s marshy outlet to a handsome dock protruding into the four-mile-long lake. On this scenic path, learn about the lake’s birth in the fiery eruption of Mount St. Helens and discover its remarkable rejuvenation since then. Take the paved path from the picnic area following alongside Coldwater Lake's outlet. Coldwater was formed in 1980 when Mount St. Helens sent an avalance of rock and earth into the narrow valley."
