This trail is great for viewing the contrast between the normal forestlands and the blast zone resulting from the May 1980 eruption. Along the way you’ll ride some fun singletrack and have good opportunities for wildlife viewing. From Portland take Interstate 5 north 21 miles from the Columbia River Bridge to Washington Highway 503. Head east on WA 503 for 47 miles to Forest Service 25, then take FS 25 north 33 miles to FS 99. Turn west on FS 99 and proceed 4.8 miles to Bear Meadow Viewpoint. Tread is all singletrack. Hazards: Some loose tread and steep sections.
