    Fantastic, incredibly steep hike. It was bright and sunny once we got above the clouds, with amazing views of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams. But the best park of the hike was sliding down the snow.

    The hike was half in snow and half in ash and loose gravel. There is not a trail up the mountain past treeline follow the snow path to the rim.

    I have hiked this one twice, once scouting the Monitor Ridge trail up Mt Saint Helens and the second time on my way to Monitor Ridge for my summit attempt. It's a beautiful windy hike through the trees with some intense switchbacks and great views. It's not a loop, which is what I prefer. But this out and back is great.
