"The northernmost section of the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument sees far fewer visitors than any other part of the monument, or so it seems to us. There’s no real reason for this, as far as I know, other than it’s a bit more remote. But it’s certainly no less scenic. The Green River–Vanson Peak section of the monument offers some great hiking scenery to explore, and the Goat Creek Trail provides a great introduction to the region." Read more
