Boundary Trail: Bear Meadows to Norway Pass Trailhead Professional Review and Guide

"Climb gently through old-growth forest, passing rushing streams, then enter the Blast Zone of the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption. After hiking through another sheltered patch of large timber, and topping a ridge, you’ll descend through the blasted forest to the trailhead.

A small group of people was camped at Bear Meadows—near the trailhead where this hike begins—on the morning of May 18, 1980. Gary Rosenquist was among them, and he snapped a spectacular series of quick-succession photographs of the eruption that has been widely published. Then he and his companions made a harrowing drive to escape."
